I considered a barra but it was cheaper to get the forged combo. And easier sticking with the sohc. No cutting k frame or sump mods, I'd have to re do the cooler piping and dump pipe, then stuff around getting it to run with the Microtech. And I didn't want to rip out the Microtech wiring and loom. Plus alot more things.

I prefer the sohc, and this bottom end is alot stronger than any stock barra with 200,000km plus , depending on a good tune of course.

That's fair, turbo motors are becoming cheap, if you're running a standars turbo manifold and turbo aftermaket dumps bolt straight on and only need alittle modding on the turbo part so you can get the bolts kn and out :lol:

I couldn't find any barras besides from wreckers and they wanted 4000 for a complete bf motor. I didn't want a ba because they have a weaker bottom end compared to the bf series 2.

What did you end up doing with the Cams? That was another issue I came across, either lock the cams, use the factory ecu or an aftermarket ecu that can run them.

Mine runs on a ba loom and computer, mine is a bf f6 motor, my mates car ss this runs vipec and they were trying to control the vct and couldn't so he put battle masters in it from atomic, but he's lost a s**t load of down low, could almost cool 2 minute noodles with how long it takes him to get up on transbrake but they've tuned it while at the drags last time and is getting better

If I didn't already have a Aftermarket ecu I would of went with a barra. But since I've done the wiring and finally got it working good I don't want to rip it all out.

Motor is not far off being ready to go back in. Inlet Manifold and clutch needs to go on also wiring loom,spark plugs leads alternator etc.
