was the pun intended?
yea me too...give me an F1 style 15000rpm 150hp/liter motor any day!!Would you want an engine like that in your car? (OK, I would love it, but most people wouldn't, so they won't sell them like that).[/b]

I'd take it any day also...
the bike is near 85 ft/lbs... on an inertial dyno, the tach stops at 12, but has a variable redline... or i can turn it off all together if im willing to pay for an eneging rebuild all that often. actually, it's a flashing red light not a line... i love bikes, and cars
I guess what he meant, was that it would take a lot of work for minimal gains, and you could easily mis-step and trash the whole thing.
one the 998cc, it does ok in the lower rpms, mainly because it's a large bore v twin... but when you get on it, it goes...

i currently have a blown motor from a tc in my garage. would you need an assembled or bare head to do the research on?? pm me if you are interisted and we can make a deal!!Originally posted by SK VR4@Dec 13 2005, 09:50 AM
I think there is a good bit to be gained actually. Plus, playing with the cams would do some good as well. I will eventually get one of these heads on the flowbench and start playing with different configurations. Im looking for a blown motor right now to research on.
