yea really... people act like they are reinventing the wheel here by just adding a modified piston to lower compression and replacing some components with higher strength ones.
Now if we were building some custom 9300++ RPM S65(The higher the better for me
) and really started modifying the drivetrain I could justify high costs and would buy one. For what those people are payin for stroker engines and built LC engines and what they are getting out of it is disappointing in my eyes. To each their own.
