disturbthepeace1 -> I thought there has to be more power in this little motor so I had a T/3 from my previous bug motor and decided to make hybrid, pretty simple the only thing is that i have to get the t/3 shaft tuned .010 under to fit the fresh bearings in my t/4 center section. I figure i dont get full boost till about 5000rpm so if i could make that same 16psi at 3000rpm; that's free hp? hope Im right........in the picture you can see the drastic difference in exhaust housing size.
