what type of change in compression ratio and hp would I be looking at installing this?
If they are making the rods longer, they have probably moved the piston pin up in the piston to make up for it. longers rods will give the rod a better angle would not effect stroke as long as you use the correct pistons for the rods. I dont know much about the kit stuff because its probably cheaper to build a 3 mill with aftermarket parts than just replace the parts with kit parts but if Im right it should say that you have to use the rod with there piston and that it wont work with stock pistons. if you put a longer rod on the factory piston the piston will smash the head. Hope that makes some sense kinda rambled through it:thumbsup:I heard somewhere that were just interested in intake cams, and what is ment by a few extra hp below 10? I am looking to cam it but I might get the kawi race stuff for internals (Pistons, valves, etc) to get it to pump out some power. Kawi actually says the connecting rods are longer, this would shorten my stroke, thus lowering the CC. I am not catching on to how this increases power.
It means you need four.its at kawi now, all the parts at
it shows $302 Piston (4), whats that 4 mean, is it 302 for 4 or you just need 4.
heres the way I would do it: $500-600 cp or Je 3 mill piston set, $800 crower rods, $400 to bore and plate the cases, carpenters head and cams maybe $2500 if you put it together yourself, $400 for a dry nitrous kit. so for the same money you would have a 3 mill making roughly 185-195 and just put a 40 shot on it for fun thats 230 or so hp. more than enough to have fun with. I would bet without headwork and all the kit parts that motor doesnt make 165 tops if you add headwork into it your now up another $2500 to $7250 for the same 185-195 hp. :thumbsup: Garth I know you thought i was going to say buy a turbo and thats another option but I dont think thats what hes looking for.I just priced out the pistons, pins, rings, and lower end bearings and its at $3,000 bucks lol.... what do you thikn you'd spend that on vince???
oh and the rods are $1,750
