Not sure what the OP's plans are but I would just slap a new 207 short block in it and get back out there mate. All these fancy closeddick.oilphased.polished.pressed.sleeved14mm. billetforgedwankfest builds break just as often as stockers if you are pushing them hard at the track...

Yo.
Built properly with a few abuse allowances put in no reason you cant have a 450-500hp motor that only needs to be pulled appart every few years to inspect things

Some of those WAW nights probably wouldn't have helped either, couple of times it was so quiet you'd be back lining up by the time you got down the return road.



I agree that dropping a 207 short into it and being done with it would be least difficult and probably the most sensible option. The spanner in the works is I've had the 257 for a while, and the vast majority of the parts are already sourced. I have a habit of not taking the easy road with this car - I wouldn't go through it all again, but have learned so much as a result.


Next time I'll know not to stuff around. Straight to the TT EZ30 dedicated track car
