Built Motor

Tom,

I am tring to figure out what my options are going to be within next few months. I am going to buy Clints turbo kit to fun on my Zx3. I am eventually going to want to purchase a built motor from you. I want to eventually run hugh boost and I was wondering what type,options,price, and complete motor setup you would suggest..


Shaun

You do know for that you will need a full return fuel system

I would do the crower billet rods and the rest of the full built engine

Right about 340 to 350 you start seeing problems , a boost-a-pump will help some , a return fuel system will be best tho

i pretty sure they have to be custom done. i think that is what i heard tom say the last time this subject was up.

my question for tom is how hard is it to make the return fuel system and what all would be needed.
a return fuel line i know, lol
what kind of rail?
what kind of regualtor?
and did you use the stock tank and make a hole for he return line or did you get another?
what did you do about the stock fueling system? just take that sensor off the computer and run a vac regualed adjustabel regulator?
did you change the fuel pump out to a non variable?
how much did all of this cost you? the longer you think about the process the more it seems like it would cost, lol.
