It't a 20XE with a Coscast head and Mahl forged pistons. Only the very best for me

Should be pushing a standard 155bhp as it is the earliest type (hence the Coscast head and the forged pistons) engine and I have just fully reconditioned it... The valves are all spotless and the head and pistons are pretty immaculate too... Takes bloody ages though I want to run it on twin 45's one day, or get some bike throttle bodies on there so it'll be pushing around 180bhp, maybe a little more with a different cam profile....

The Alpha gold kit is also an option for 190bhp or 205bhp if I upgrade to platinum by fitting the cams and software upgrade...

Mark Evans Stylee.

Wouldnt a second hand dishwasher be cheaper than some parts washers?


Would love to rebuild a motor like that good stuff

It will be good stuff when it's in, though I have run out of money now and I'm not quite sure what to do with it
