Watching this one. 2013 should be a good year for boost!

Pete, I think I would leave it alone and enjoy that 1402.
Wait till something is proven.
Still waiting to hear for AU...
I have no plans to be a beta tester! Once I see which SC is showing reliability, I think I know what needs to be done in order to build a motor that won't come apart or seize as long as boost is kept within some reasonable limits and there's plenty of fuel to keep things cool.
I'm tossing this idea around, just not sure which SC I'd want to put on just yet...
Yes, this will be on a 1402 motor, but I have some other plans for it to help keep it together. I'd have to change the cams, probably re-work the heads (again - long story there aye Scott?), move to a higher flow fuel pump, look at the fuel rail capacity, and change to a 30 tooth pulley along with a stronger clutch, and possibly the Trask output shaft side brace (if they are even making them???).
I would probably also start conservative with the boost and try to find a happy "180HP+" spot to settle into...
I'm already frying a 250 tire without much effort, I'm just thinking this could expand the "fun zone" a little more... Heh.
Overall, the project sounds pretty simple
I think you should definitely go for it If it holds together for a few thousand miles I will be right behind you....

Everything I say is fully substantiated by my own opinion!
You're merely over-educated beyond your ability to think!
Malcomx" It turns out that the truth is pretty good protection."
Slow and steady is my only recommendation this needs to be done correctly the first time not the third. Building a bullet proof motor is key which will include head work, heat coatings, and engine bracing. I am interested in working with Rod to insure these items are addressed to insure longevity.

if we can figure out the equation to in 170ish at the wheel and like scott said it's still be bullet proof, i'm in.
It all depends on how far ppl are willing to go for bullet proofing? 170-180hp I don't see much of a problem at all especially if your willing to do a teardown and ceramic coat everything possible along with pistons for boosted application.
