Rebirth of the S65

Well after a long journey through my voided engine, I have finally got it back more than 2 months ago and finally had time to get it cleaned and spruce it up a little so I thought I post some photos here. I love the new rebuilt engine and it sounds absolutely menacing with a higher compression ratio @ 12.8:1. I used parts like Carillo Rods, Forged Pistons, Coated Bearings, etc for the rebuild including the use of iron sleeves in the motor which originally came with Alusil coating. The engine is substantially smoother than my stock motor and definitely much more torquey everywhere in the rev range. In short, everything feels lighter when you rev the motor to 8,600 RPM. And it absolutely is a fricking blast when you pull to that RPM.

I have a video of the dyno but I am finding a way to save it onto youtube so that will be up shortly.

ENGINE REBUILD PHOTOS
















BREMBO GT / AKRAPOVIC EXHAUST SYSTEM / RANDOM




























And Finally in preparation for F1 in Singapore, here's a cool shot!

Thanks Guys for the load of confidence but this is NOT a new motor.
Its the same motor with forged pistons, iron sleeves, carillo rods, etc.
Cylinder Head has been skimmed to give a higher CR. The only thing I reused in this engine is the valve springs and some of the valves. The new pistons are light as hell and they work incredibly well in this setup with iron sleeves.

I will get some number soon and post it back here...
