    why not build that ski with CP/Carillo Rods and Pistons with ARP Bolts, Riva Head Gasket etc ? I understand you bought an new yami short block which is complete. did u calculate to buy just the cases and install the new Engine Parts ?

    Sounds Great by the way

    I priced it multiple ways. OEM Short block, bare block & nice rods & pistons, ect... it was about 2k more to build the block vs a buying a OEM short block. I had to buy a bare block, & then buy the rotating assemble... then I also could not get the rotating assembly
    balanced anywhere I normally would use for 3-4 month waiting list. So between not riding the rest of the season. & 2k more ontop of a very pricy rebuild. Used a OEM short block.

    Also it seemed to be the general consensus, if I was not going to run better fuel then 93 pump, & 20lbs of boost there was not really a need for the better rods & pistons. Still would rather have them don't get me wrong but. I am not trying to make the ski a race ski. Pump gas is still key to me.

    I zoomed in on my gauge and looks like solid 11.5 AFR on that pull. So could be a little leaner, also I have another ride plate to try. VX with Jims cut. Need to take out all tools and beer and make a pass ha. But next year dual stage controller and ride it. I will make a test pass or 2 with new ride plate just to see how it acts and see if any new top speed.

    But fat rider, home built, rec ski on pump gas in Alabama heat with beer and tools Mide 90s goal was met.
