Ok, so my build has taken a rather different turn.
I've gotten to the point in my research where I have learned all the things I wanted to know in order to start off a build.
I have spoken a lot with Dave Rebello and I have come to the decision that I did not want to take my motor down that route. This is not because of Dave's lack of professionalism or talent, but more in terms of needs. The different motor builds, the more I looked into them, all sounded nice, but none of them really fit what I wanted. The power figures were all nice, of course, but I decided that I didn't want an all out powerhouse of an engine....instead, I wanted a responsive one.
After talking to a few people who have worked with him before, I have decided to go with Eiji at DSI. This guy is just great. I've never encountered customer service and eye for detail on his level before. After many, many lengthy emails and phone conversations, we finally have a build down that I am completely satisfied with....well, my wallet isn't, but that's a different story!
I'll update this thread with the build details as they happen, but in short, the engine will be:
- L28 Crank
- Block bored (89mm)
- DSI Pistons and Rods (I believe they are 29mm Kameari Pistons (280g!!) with custom 139.5mm rods.)
- *Cam is under consideration
- Triple 45 DCOE Webers
- Compression Approx. 10.5 - 11.0
- Power Approx. 260/250
I'll update this thread with any updates!
