I was given LO206 with a worn cam. I want to break it open and build it to run Gas Animal. I have found regulations on the Animal but want to know if anything other than the Connecting rod, cam and ignition are different. Value size, Springs. Questioning others and snooping, I hear that people are paying up to $1500 for professionally built "Race" engines. If they are restricted to certain things what is really done to make it a "Race" engine.
Can I just open it and replace those things (if nothing else needs it) and have a competitive Animal?

Yes you can replace some of the parts (everyone does) but the real trick is in doing the allowed machining and setting everything to get maximum power.
There is a lot of labor that goes into a blueprinted engine and that's why the price is substantially higher than one off the shelf. Do your research and have at it. You'll have fun. __________________ Jimbo
