hey all

well, was thinking about doing a recon etc on mine, but quite impressed with the ITS performance products & prices. i know Hyena & Shugg have ITS engines in theirs - so looking specifically for their thoughts, as well as anyone else who can offer a bit of advice! so heres the details:


STAGE 1 - 115RwKw

Genuine gaskets only
Genuine chain guides
Full reco head (std spec)
Xr spec cam
Chem clean block
Block skimmed
Brass welch plugs
Thermostate & O'ring
Race bearings
Black rings
Close & hone rods
Hone the bores
Linished or Regrind crank (depending on condition)
JP h/v oil pump
Spark plugs
Engine painted
Heavy duty head studs
Pureone oil filter & oil

STAGE 2 - 130RwKw

Same as Stage 1 plus
Sligtly bigger cam
35Thou shave of head
New pistons

STAGE 3 - 145RwKw

Same as Stage 1&2 plus
Larger cam
45Thou of head
Competion head gasket
Over size exhaust valves
20Thou oversize pistons

STAGE 3PS - 160RwKw

Same as Stage 1,2,3 plus

i'm looking @ the 3 or 3PS kit - $3350 for the 3, $4100 for the 3PS.

so please, shoot me your thoughts - its a bit of $$$ so i need to make sure as to what i'm doing! :wink:

Yeah I would be interested to know also.

There was a great big long thread somewhere on here a while ago. I will have a look at that first.

Go the 3PS, after you get it back, you'd be asking yourself why you didnt spend an extra $700 for the extra power.

And when you think about it, $700 is only 2-3 weeks work.
