Hi Guys... okay there has been some minor set backs

Most of the Engineers have just started operating for this year, Luckily my first cousin is a mechanical engineer so he has managed to assist me in drawing up the specs for the cams... all that needs to be done is forward this to a cnc operator to manufacture it, as well as buy the correct metal.

Some people are saying that this is a long route however it will be a custom one, South Africa does not support the ST170 well... So not weight of the actual produced cams will have to be calculated.

Valves also at delay but now the metal has come through so that is in process and valve springs will be purchased from AEM.

Interms of how the bottom end will cope, I am considering forged pistons... would really like a sponsor now....lmao

I think this project might just go all out to the max
If I have offended you, eat a banana, I am sure that will make you fell better...
