    FZR engine and config alternatives

    Since it is pretty slow around here:

    What engine aternatives could be used in a FZR and what adavantages would that alternative provide?

    What confguration alternatives to the OEM engine and hull are possible. Such as turbo, etc... And, what turbos, etc... would be good options?

    ok...ready?


    Forged pistons and rods.....balance/blueprint rotating assembly......port head....lightweight valves....aftermarket ECU.....upgraded fuel system.........water jacketed turbo........

    basically just watch what Bruce does with his conversion.....one of the best minds out there and he's building this motor.....datalog with Motecpete........

    when in doubt go smaller with turbo to alleviate lag issues (which r small with 1.8l engine) and go up from there.........adjustasble wastegate to run on alternative fuels.................you will dominate all!!!!
