I'm starting a pair of 'motivation' threads, to get people going on projects, and to help inspire more people on their engine builds. There are many different paths to make these clubs, and this will allow people to get some ideas, and choose their evil.

How it will work is this: PM to me, or any other Duratec moderator, a link to your dynograph, and include the modifications done to the engine. (you may include a link to a picture of your too if you like). We will post it in the appropriate thread so we all can revel in your engine's glory. However, to keep things civil, these threads will be locked.

So, will you join the Duratec clubs? :party:

Welcome that_odd_focus to the club!

that_odd_focus said:
I recently did a 2.3 swap in my Kona. She not completely perfect, I have to upgrade from my 2.25 exhaust to a 2.5, still have water meth injection to hook up along with putting in 30# fuel injectors since she's leaning out on stocks (I should have known better). But on stock injectors she made 201.9 whp and 146 wtq. I'll send you a link to the dyno chart.

11:1 compression Wiseco pistons, Ranger crank with Cosworth balance shaft delete and oil baffle, Eagle rods, upgraded 8mm Cosworth timing chain, gasket matched port and polish, Crower steel retainers and 250 lb valve springs, stage 2 Crane cams, Cosworth intake manifold, FSWerks race header, 2.25 TruBendz Magnaflow, K&N cold air intake, MFactory LSD, stage 1 Exedy clutch, all ARP hardware, SVT fuel pump

You'll have to install o2 bungs for them as far as I know. You can't delete those as the ECU needs them to adjust fuel.
