We’re happy to say that Jason Nelson’s motor build is now complete. This motor is a beast, and this car will be good for up to 400 HP. We spent considerable time making sure this motor was 100% new with completely machined heads, and a brand new short block with Manley pistons. Jason wanted his car to feel new again and to be able to handle future mods and put a lot of power to the ground. With his goals in mind we sat down and comprised a mod list that would make the most sense for him. People sometimes ask why we don’t bore engines out, or use different bearings in our motor builds. Years ago we had the opportunity to work with the Subaru Race team, and their engineers recommend using the oem bearings for motors that won’t be seeing extreme power. We too their recommendations and continue to use them today! Swoop Lives!
