That is a lot of power for an NA engine of that size.  Be careful.
hi bo-175 bhp is about right for this spec-a lot of care went into building the motor and we got the whole mess D.C.T.,d-fingers crossed!!

cant wait

interesting build, luv the old skool stuff,  8-),,, on my first trip to Bonneville i also noticed the same as you, no big air cooled Kawasaki or Suzuki's,, will be watching your fun at the salt, :cheers:,,


we got a fella here , lives in Brisbane, who builds carburated EFE street bikes(no niterous) that will run the quarter in the high 8 seconds,, 1500 and 1800cc,, have often though of getting one built to run at Gairdner, :-),

love rthe fact that at every drag race you see the modern pointy skirtsbike bodywork pulled off and 8 times out of ten it s a real muscle bike ie AIRCOOLED.1800cc  right on the limit of the stock cases-great work-
we look at brett de stoops work and just love it! aged iron!!!

well we had a blast-best speed was 164mph , just off the power and a wandering misfire-we lost compression on the last day but both got our c licences -so not too bad-met up with some old pals and made some new-
watching my mates ashes being spread down the salt was hugely emotional on top of all the emotion that goes with speedweek-
as ever wanted to thank all the scta members and all the volunteers for so much hard work and so much dedication -all so we can travel thousands of miles and hurl ourselves down your wonderful salt flats-
THANKS -SEE YOU SOON.
P.J.

It is great that you had a good time.  Hopefully there is nothing seriously wrong with the engine.
