I didn't particularly like the place I had my DynoJet reading done at but the one thing he did say after the 10+ pulls over 2 days is "damn that runs consistently". Even comparing back to the dyno day with no torque reading all my runs were within a few whp of each other. There was no "magic" one time run that gained 15+whp that couldn't be replicated again. Same consistency on the WinnFlow dyno. Consistency is the most important thing IMO. A glory run is fun to brag about but the fun stops there!
Basically sums the kit up.

Kit looks great! Love the sound

Andrew I was wondering from the look of those bearings, in your opinion would the motor have been ok for many miles or was a change needed?


Thanks!

Well I can't exactly tell you how much longer the engine would of lasted but I would say it had a good amount of time left.

We did find more wear to the top bearings compared to the lower and one light scratch to one of the bottom bearings as well. At this point it seems like it was a good idea to change them out for preventative maintenance but the customer wasn't in dire need either. Better safe than sorry though!
