 Trent,I was out having a feed with a bunch of people and one of them is doing a PhD in DNA forensics related to fauna smuggling, I was talking about you because she'd met someone who it sounds like might have been one of your neighbours...

" he lives in the Black Hills area, you know right at Rushmore there, he's a climber and stuff and he has a brewery.."

sound familiar?.... my friend's name is Sherryn cheers

I just can't get past the little valves and the availability of decent performance parts
They run them in wingless sprint cars and and there used to be a Formula Holden series here
But we  made the same sort horsepower as the formula holden cars on the dyno
I feel that I'm at the naturally aspirated limit for this engine
3" stroke in a 4" bore Chevy V6. you know it makes sense

Makes sense for cheap parts availability, but if you're building from scratch around a 4" bore, a 3" stroke in a 6 cylinder E engine doesn't.

Have you considered taking off .020 in an offset grind on a 4.3 crank?  Puts you right at the class limit.  rolleyes
