That long motor is a good price Sav. I don't think the freight to Aus would make it viable though. Anyway I enjoy doing this sort of stuff myself, I sit in front of a computer poking at solidworks all day so it is therapeutic for me to come home and build engines on my kitchen table
Oh and I have got ARP mains on the list too, just didn't put that up in my first post because that is one of the non optional parts of the build along with good bearings.
As I said there was another member on this forum making 398whp even on the same dyno that I use, a dynapack hub dyno, but that was with water injection. I think he was making about 370odd without and that was on exactly
the same turbo as me even the small rear.
That said I am realistically looking for 350whp with good response and reliability. I know I could squeeze a bit more if I wanted, and I would like to leave that option open with the engine itself, but response is my aim atm.
Is there any worthwhile difference in the street/strip BE pump vs the racer or is it really negligible? From what I can gather they are the same gears, just the pump galleries have been cleaned up/machined out?
