Hey all, its been a VERY long time since I've posted to any of the q-lists, but I spoke about this 20v motor for 80tq for sometime, so I figured I'd give you guys an update...

I got the motor built and installed Junish and spent some time in July/Aug. shaking things down and fixing little issues.  After some sorting out, I've been enjoying tuning this powerful motor and its severe acceleration.  So far the 2.3l 20v cranked out over 415hp to the wheels with 30psi on some too-aggressive CAT cams, and 393 wheel HP (so far), with a more mild 25psi on some 7A cams (Sealevel #'s, no SAE corrections here).  

I also ran a 12.25 @ 118mph at Sears point (the other 4 runs were 12.4's, one with a  trap speed of 119mph).

Anyhoo, as usual I've made a good attempt to document everything I've done and show the results, please visit http://www.80tq.com/20vtMotor.html to read up more, and of course, always feel free to comment, question or flame me for any reason ;)
