You caught the cylinder seating issue, which would have been a big deal. Glad you got that squared away.

I'm still using the Joe Bence Billet one. I also did the bronze shift rod bushing. Shifts awesome.

Now the reality is the 90.5's are thicker cylinder walls than the old school thin 92's so the cylinders don't hold their shape and you have more blow-by robbing power.

My thin-wall 92s have been in ...
