SOOOOOOOOO Pablo still has the engine and I am okay with that. The reason for this is that we have discussed new developments and recent discoveries. We wanted to make sure that what I am getting will be up to my standards and to ensure that the changes made will be done correctly, after all we are stroking the engine and a few other things that I have talked to him about in the last 2 weeks. All of this time gave me the opportunity to think about my goals and how realistic they are.

For starters, 550 is super attainable, however, I am beginning to think that a super responsive 450/390 with an 8200rpm redline would be a blast, lighter and balanced rotating components too!!!. I mean, how fun would it be to achieve peak boost at 3200-3500 rpm!?

Banging shifts north of 8k would be better than sex! Okay no, better than ice cream for sure though. I'm sure this is going to cost a fortune though.

I'm all about a higher redline.......kinda like this!
Holy Sh!t!! He's not in any gear for more than 1 second. Intense! I'm guessing that car doesn't have air conditioning. LOL
