Man, I really suck at multiple quotes in a single post. I never really get it right. I also definitely need a new sig.

Hard to say exactly as there isn't many examples to go off of, I do plan a dyno session afterwards, though.

Are you going to be increasing the capacity of the engine from 2.5 - 3L or not touching the bottom end? Congrats on being different too btw, subscribing to see the outcomes.

The stroker kit on here http://www.eurocarmotorsport.com/frame.htm (halfway down the page) surely looks thorough but would cost an arm and a leg.

Couldn't find much actual information on that site. The headers look cool as well. I'm using a 330 crank, and it is going to be balanced with the pistons, rods, clutch, flywheel, and harmonic damper.

Neither could I, I searched for a while to see what options I had for increasing capacity and there was only 3 real sites I could find with almost no information.

Sounds like a thorough build, done right the first time. Good luck!
