Thanks folks I'm very excited to finally put this into action.

Motor was picked up today and it's in the back of a semi on its way out to Ohio. Ill see what kind of pictures I can get out of Scott and throw them into an Imgur album for the forum any my own story telling.

Ya know streetrodracer I went back and forth on the displacement too, especially in 2015 when this motor first crapped out. I could have had it back on the road much sooner (and cheaper) had I gone smaller. I arrived at the 1400cc range because I was very lucky to score the 3/8th inch Falicon billet crank off an old member here.

From there it was the motor having previously sustained substantial damage from an over boosted turbocharger and a toasted piston, that it be extensive enough to warrant a new cylinder liner. The motor is originally an 1130 so id likely need it machined anyway, and if I was going to punch it, I figured I'd get the best bang for my buck.

But most importantly, 1487cc is the first Revo combination that over 90ci of displacement. I want to be able to say any fan of the FXDR that the Milwaukee-Eight can't do in 117 what the Revo does at 90.

Arbitrary number but a nice round line in the sand.
