    Needing help finding a builder/tuner... Deployed plz help

    As the title says I'm in need of a reputable engine builder and tuner. After my first deployment I put a GSR motor in my Crx. Long story short, not enough power and not enough money to boost so I stroked out to 2.16 and started to fit a nitrous kit. Then I got short notice orders to deploy to...

    Huge dilemma with my build Stroker GSR

    GSR Problems please lend some help

    Sorry it took so long to write back, got pulled for some training in preparation for Afghanistan. So I re torqued the head bolts, did everything in my power to make everything perfect and still pulled bad compression. So I decided to pull the head and get a little bit better look at the block...

    GSR Problems please lend some help

    Yes the head is a different head completely, the dowel pins were used, the head was torqued in the correct sequence. The cams im using are Brian Crower stage 2 natural aspiration. When i spin the crank pulley it honestly feels like the compression is lost when the cams "up" stamp is in the 3...
