    Rossion rebuild

    We received this project a few months ago and have made steady progress.
    The engine always smoked, more than less. The owner decided to upgrade the valve train while it was here.

    We started off with a baseline of 390 whp and upgraded with our tuning package to 450whp.

    Ill blog here our findings.

    Even with the really nice exhaust wrap, hoses were very crispy.
