DynaJet power commander to alter the fueling ( or bazzaz like I am running). Ram air stacks maybe. No room for turbo/supercharger in in the promo kit unless you do a rear mount. I have not seen much online for internals but I'm sure there is something in existence somewhere. Insurance is purely dependent on the person.

i have found a kit to bore and stroke the 5pw to a 1.1L. you dont need ram air stacks when you run an open fitler set up.

I would be more likely to go to the engine maximum power, do not know much about motorcycles and engines gearboxs, I have a show I like loud noises and lots of grunt.

I think i am the only one in North America

The build will be pretty slow still as i need to get one more panel ordered and source an engine. But that will be hopefully completed before dec15

Well I cut the sill off the driver side today... The PO had three seperate panels welded together and they were all over sills. I pulled two pounds of rusty panel and crud from inbetween each panel.

Ill post a pic tomorrow. As there is some funky panels in there that i need to know if they belong

I also drilled out 43 spot welds today to remove the heelboard. i need to jack the truck up to drill out the rest

How do I go about replacing the floor?
I am going to do one side at a time and cut half the crossmember out leaving the other half in until I am ready for the other side.
Do I do the heel board first or last?

finally got a lead on a engine today!!
