pop goes the motor

Post by donger » Sun May 22, 2016 2:14 pm

my motor has giving up the ghost , only 1 chamber left working on rear ! over boosted ! Time to rebuild it stronger,new rotors that are made to handle 20 psi boost, the aim is to get over 400 horsepower at the wheels , 300HP was getting boring !!

Brookvale mechanical and exhausts, Andrew has been building rotories for for a long time on the northern beaches,plus he is a 5 minute walk from where I live. He done the bump compression test for me , engine should be out and open before the end of the week hopefully.

What are you going to do to the motor so it can that sort of boost?
