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,  cool,,, 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, smiley,

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.
