Beginning of my 1078cc Gen 3 build

Finally got the majority of my parts in for my engine build so I figured I would post a picture up. Here's the rundown:

Carpenter Racing Head/Cam package
CP 3mm pistons @ 13.5:1 compression
Carillo Connecting Rods
Cometic .030 Headgasket (slightly thinner)

The Carpenter package includes a CNC port on the head, upgraded valve springs, titanium retainers and Megacycle billet camshafts. Everything else is just run of the mill, off the shelf parts. I have no clue how much power to expect so I'm not going to get my hopes up and bet on a number just yet.

Eventual goal is to add a nitrous kit and spray whatever it will hold reliably but I'm going to get some seat time first before doing so. I bought a spare set of engine cases to have machined so I'll be sending them out next week and once they return I will schedule a date to drop the bike off with my engine builder.

Can't wait!

That's actually the last step I have to accomplish before the engine gets built. My engine builder has someone he sends them out to normally but I'm weighing options. Everywhere I've looked seems to be in the $700-800 range no matter who you go with.

I prefer US chrome i had a bad experience with Millennium, although Carpenter uses them, he sends em lots of work so will be better looked after i would have had him do them if i was sending a head in. Have you had the +1mm valve option on the seats?

contact kim at carolina cycles. $650, close to u and they also do a light final mill on top deck surface after plating to ensure perfectley flat and better finish for head gasket seal than the plating deposited there in the process. just a heads up, most piston kits i measure have about .005 negative deck when assembled. that .030 hg is slightley thicker than stock and will result in .035 piston to head. if u want it all, that is too much and cost u some power. cometic can make u a hg any thickness u specify, set pth .028, u will be faster for it.
