We couldn't sit around watching Nadsy's RSX drip oil all over Derrick's driveway forever so we finally dropped it off at Raceline Development for Elton Lo to work his magic with the Toda 2150cc stroker kit. In the meantime, we were still lingering around Phoenix on our never-ending search for hot blonde ASU chicks so we stopped by Hasport again to see what they had going on. Ali Jahed from AKH Trading told us a while back that they were working with Hasport to put a motor together for our Time Attack. Unfortunately, things didn't go as smoothly as everyone had imagined so there we were, months after the fact, with a disassembled motor. But have no fear when Hasport is near. In just a few hours Brian Gillespie and his crew re-assembled the K20 motor with Toda's goodies. Though this setup almost mirrors Nady's motor, it's actually quite different because of the parts being used. However, for all you annoying people who like to ask tons of meaningless questions during meetings, we're planning on doing a dyno comparison when both engines are done. So put your hands down and listen up.
