    It would be good if some people outside shops would start selling them though.

    Drill presses aren't that expensive and I'm sure it would get used many times for other projects, this thread is mainly for the guys that are in to fabricating parts and have some knowledge of machining etc and those guys will have this sort of equipment already.
    And you'll be paying a hell of a lot more than 149 for a pro ported engine my friend.

    Good work Cabbie
    Discussion is good and members might want to ask questions on this in the future.

    Cabbie can start a new thread or post everything in the opening post so that its easier on the eyes but its all about the discussion that follows really.

    The engine will rev a lot fast and there will be a definite "power band" you can hear kick in, it'll start easier, rev higher and all flat spots will be gone.

    You can do this work on any of the engines and kits available.

    As long as the used engine ain't knackered, not much point doing all the work to a POS!
