@Phase1sr@dmallett there you go! I've possibly forgotten some bits as well. There's a lot to remember tbh.
Thanks. It's quite a long list when you write it all down like that! Lol
The idea for it all mainly came from wanting to run the 197 inlet as its a better looking design imo. More aesthetically pleasing! I set about converting a 1*2 head to accept the inlet, but the work involved was stupendous!! I dropped lucky on a 197 engine in bits so I cherry picked the items I knew I could work with and left the rest.
All because I just wanted to crack 200hp without itbs. Lol!
