Here's my setup:

Type S Pistons 11:1
Complete Port Flow head (P&P, polishing, etc, everything)
Crower Stage 3 Cams
Ferrea Valves
6puck clutch, 9lb flywheel, rebuilding the tranny right now.
15k miles on the engine, but I just rebuilt it. All parts are new.


SX1000 fuel pump, 310cc injectors, FPR and a VAFC. It will be tuned extensively (by me) on a Lambda meter.

Will be running a 100 shot plate system in 3 weeks and tuning for the nitrous.

So vote how long you think my engine will last. I think 6 months+ and evetually will just burn up rings and I'll end up having to build the bottom end. :)

Have you ran all motor yet? With stage 3s and headwork and 11:1 cr you should put down good power....What your whp all motor? That must haul ass
Nope havent ran it yet. I'm hoping for 200whp. We'll see. It wont haul that much, my turbo setup put down 242whp at 7psi. :)

Thats why I'm anxious to squeeze on it. :D
