Running the new 1360cc engine in earlier this year with rev limiter set at 5500 and using no more than half throttle.

I have since put a few hundred more miles on it so the rev limiter is now at 6500, where it will stay. The cams are profiled for max power at 6500.
I have briefly opened it up fully in the higher gears a couple of times. It's a handful!

Hi Greg
The valve springs are RD as supplied by Terry.
Very happy with the MK5 s. I was worried about the idle and low speed running but both are fine. The idle is definitely cammy but strong at 1200 then it smoothens out just off idle.

Hi Bill

I'll find some photos and post them. Most of the photos I hsve are with the standard engine in place but there are a couple with the new engine.
It looks much the same except bigger as the muffs are for the 92 mm size and Terry has snuck 25 % more cooling fin area than stock on the head and muffs.
