how many engines did you ever build and what kinda engine
I have built a few motors for off road, I can build a motor.
i have an m44 coming for the crank, using s52 size pistons which will but the bottom end up to 2L. Will be converting the electronics to use a afs instead of the afm. Once I have the bottom end built I will be getting the cylinder head done(port/polished ect)
your saying a 30hp increase is all thats possible on a 4 cyl
motor ....you can hit 160 with out building a stroker m42 with a good cold air intake, adjusting the cams, boring the secondary throttle body, using an electric fan, lighter flywheel and a chip, which to me is all bolt on.
I will keep those interested in the build once it starts in a few weeks, won't be an overnight or weekend build though.
anyways, most people find it easier to just drop in a bigger motor, that's just a swap and compared to building a motor is easy, thats just bolt on power, on a bigger scale ( no offense to anyone who has done this). building a high reving light motor with torque and hp is a challange most are not up to.
