Re: Re:RE:_RE:_Switching_from_the_k24_to_the_k26_on_the_dual_knockmotor

As for what i've learned at this list, the k26 delivers more volume at than the k24.
And being bigger means longer spool-up time, but a k26 put on an engine with larger displacement (that means more cc's doesn't it ?) would equal things out a little.

Wouldn't it ?
