AZteacher they usually run the toyota corolla engines. high revving, good hp, RELIABLE and smooth. these engine you can usually stand on the gas and not worry about much. once you start running big HP, you gotta be careful the throttle. too much hp on curves and bumps and jumps isn't always a good thing.

I am wondering what they do about the direction of the engines rotation on the honda engines. they rotate backwards. so do they just change the cams out or anyone here know??

Most of the race cars use a medola(sp?) trans that are the best out there.

so are they running the mendolas backwards? I heard you only had to change the cams to make the engine rotate clockwise. I am sure crower can reverse the cams for ya=$$$. it seems that would be easier than making the tranny built to run backwards??

a gsr engine would be sweet to put in a baja NA. 8000 rpm redline. I also heard a rumor that the j spec STI 7series engine can rev to 9200 rpm.

don't tell me to get a rotary either, cause I already got one im my super sleeper.

it's not that simple as a cam regrind to reverse an engine, You have things like the oil pump running backwards, water pumps not built to flow water backwards even if you revers the belts, timeing chains/belts/gears might not run backwards some have idlers that only work one way etc. etc.

Not as simple as most people think.
