Ryan and I enjoyed another outstanding weekend of live steam. Good to have Tom and Tom at the meet. I do have some video to post (busy schedule this week).

Here is the video of the GS4 v.5 retrofitted with cylinder upgrades.
Shop work prior in preparation for the run (next will be cross porting):
Original set vs. re-ported

Air testing the cylinder setup



This clip was timed at 30 sec per lap that equates to 158 smph. This setup is very impressive, I have never seen an engine with the also immediate throttle response, torque and ability to reach full speed in such a timely manner.



Reflecting back several years ago, when we reviewed this engine for SitG. Here you can see the original performance level vs. the GS4v.5 in the prior video.
