    Yes, you have said this.

    No simple solution but extending the timing chain could be done. No one has attempted this to run a thicker head gasket however.

    I don't keep up with many of the NEWER model kits
    135s/335s, new M3s, etc so I don't know

    I was actually asking
    and hinting I suppose that HPF has it GOING ON

    Knock LOGs are VERY ideal for tuning,
    but HPF is covering HTIER ass and the CUSTOMER'S ass in case of gas or "other" issue.

    HPF is kick ass and taking names. They are doing a good job. Chris is smart to have the tuner add the beep.

    Vac explained to me why the headgasket route wouldn't work. Something to do with it just not as simple as making the timing chain longer. I'm no engine builder so who know. I brought it up one time when I was there.

    We need to find out the exact info on what would need to be done. Maybe HPF can give us more info on this. Since the motor can handle good power on stock internals with high compression

    I don't really think hpf cares much. There pumping out built motors all day. I would rather have a built engine. Seems best route to me. If moneys a problem chances are your not looking at a hpf kit anyways.

    Yes a built motor is always better, but it would nice if it wasnt so hard to just lower compression so it would be safer to run pump gas. Its not about being cheap its about seeing what the stock internals could handle is all.

    This is true, I would like to see what the stock internals can handle simply to show the Porsche guys what is up.

    exactly. We have seen what the m50 based motors can do. it would be great to see what the s54 can do
