I agree, coxcarrera is taking his time and working out all the issues, so this motor should make good power.

I am waiting to see what he decides for an Exhaust, this is what will make or break this motor,

I moved the Ceramic Lifter discussion to it's own Topic, so this thread can go back on topic.

What injectors do you use with those throttle bodies? They look like the old L-jet hold down design.
Dual plug!!

Funny you bringing this up, he emailed me, it seems he has sold off most of his build and has started over going with slightly different components. I should let him explain what he has decided to build now.

I have a 86 stroke 107 bore Engine. Just started it. Bought it as "kit" from Finland.
I have had some issues but they are being sorted out.
By October if all goes well, it will be on the dyno.
Goal is not 300 hp. It is 230-240 in the engine below 7000 rpm.
So my target is more at how low revs I can make good hp and a the straighter torque curve, the happier I am.
Remind me if I have forgotten to update this thread. Good or bad, I will share.
