I would like to tear the top end down after each season to freshen things up and go through the entire engine every other season just like I’ve done in the past. With that in mind I run valves after each hook and change oil and filters every 3-4 hooks. I have to call diamond and JE about pistons and I’ll see what people’s opinions are on the rods running big rpms. It may come down to having to order piston blanks and having a shop like Blue Perf, Carroll Carter Motorsports or even Jon Kaase machine them for each cylinder.
There's no reason you shouldn't be able to do the same with this engine. You can send your head to Diamond and they will scan it and make custom pistons specifically for you if an off the shelf piston won't work. Wiseco is another option as well.

Thanks Andrew for posting those. I thought it might help for people to see what it is.

Thanks zeb. The original owner had it for years, and the first time I seen it pull was back in 05. I told the owner then if he ever sold it I wanted it. As a 18 year old kid I figured he just brushed it off but then the fall of 2017 he contacted me and said it’s for sale only to me. He said his dad passed and it was their thing and he wanted away from it. I pulled the original engine it had but now it’s time to go back with a new engine.

It is fun to see stuff people built from scratch, but I love when something has a good back story like this.

I made the original owner one promise and it’s that I won’t change up the paint scheme or the name. It’s a 10x national points champ also so it has some history. He didn’t cheap out on any parts he put in it that’s for sure.

Thanks it is rowdy. I’ll be sure to post pics and progress as it comes. I’m paying Jon Kaase a visit when I get home from offshore this week. He says he might have a few plans for it. Other than that it’ll just be getting fresh cut tires, a spare set of tires and wheels and some polishing. Other than that it’s ready to hook with a new engine.
