It’s interesting that this engine is getting so much talk from being in only one series (east of the Mississippi at least). I think if the regional series pick up the engine there may be a good club turnout following closely behind. I know if at least two guys at the club that have already picked up an engine or two to play with.
I’d grab one myself if it wasn’t so expensive now and didn’t require me to get another frame. Maybe if there happen to be a couple used in the near future and a decent group of guys at the club to run with I will.
Speaking of cost, actually, how important are blueprinting these? I think I remember people saying X30’s don’t have to be blueprinted, is that the same for a KA? And also, what has the rebuild window/price been looking like for these? I didn’t see anything in here for that yet, unless I missed in my quick skim over while I’m at work.
