    The Spoon facility just looks fucking insane,,, so clean and geometric from the outside to the inside.

    Yup, and I'm sure that Spoon rebuilds them after every race just like any other high dollar team does.

    Yea, but they are also banging it off 12k every shift - as opposed to someone on the street who would would probably use it much more sparingly. Still a good upgrade, since most motors don't even make power that high anyways. Being able to rev to 9 or maybe 10k reliably would probably be good enough for me.

    Rocket makes cams with profiles that make good power above 9500 rpm. You just have to build the bottom end accordingly. Of course nobody in their right mind would try to take a stock block that high on a regular basis.

    I would have no problem rebuilding a motor every 3-6 months if it was my track car. You would just want to check the main and rod bearings and valve clearances at regular intervals. Kinda like changing the oil.

    That is pretty sweet to see guys who are really into racing, and its nice to read about someone serious about making their cars a complete product instead of every other Honda tuning company out there which is concerned with flooding the market with parts, of course you have to earn a position like Spoon has to be able to say that.
