Other things have taken priority; school, school, FSAE car, F-class shooting, cameras, the 20v swap, track day, autocross, school, tuning the MS3.
I guess everything other than building that engine.

Re: crankshaft choice

4A-GTE. I'm hoping for around 300 WHP, or just under that (AE95 being AWD). I've got brand new stock late GZE pistons (8.9:1) and I was thinking about running a T28 turbo. I'd rather have the 200k+ mileage on the motor after it gets built since I semi-daily drive this (along with my other car). Plu...

I have a set of those 40-20 rods... can't wait to get my build finished. Only thing I had wondered about was no oiling holes, but as OST mentioned, they're not always necessary?

Stock blacktop or did you do anything to it?


It's got 100mm trumpets on AE101 throttles. Running on a megasquirt 3. There's a lot of fun in store for it, and the next one.

Still have your AE101 ITBs? Throw them back on. AE111 ITBs are large even for AE111s. You're losing throttle modulation for likely no gain in power. If you'd like, A Graham Bell talks about throttle sizing in "Four Stroke Performance Tuning" You can also do CSA analysis and look into fluid...
