Im buiding a Goopy motor that will be daily dirven for 10k miles and disassembled. I will record my findings.



I dropped off my housings, irons, rotors and a few other misc. things.

Housings, media blasted and resurfaced.

Irons, media blasted, modified, and painted.

Rotors cleaned, and new bearings installed.

E-shaft cleaned up.

Ill be using his apex, and street corner seals, and oring kit.

As per both Ito and John I'm just gonna leave the ports alone.

I told John to take his time, he has alot of work todo, as do I. Even so he said everything should be done by the end of next week. Im pumped. Not to mention he beat all of RA's prices even with the machining thats to be done.

I have a bunch of goodys coming from Pineapple tomorrow, I'm excited. lol Ill be posting pics and info of all progress of the build and parts.

My tear is documented here.

Nice, good luck with the build.



Please post build pics here! I can't stand reading some of those idiots' replies. Look how many start with/include "I heard..." Yeah, that's great advice fella

I Will you guys are a much more mature group and this is were I spend most of my time. Just wish there was alittle more traffic here.



So I spoke to Ito at his shop for an hour and a half yesterday discussing the benifits this expeiriment will provide for the community amoung other things. He told me not be marketing/advertising any product w/o some sort of compensation for my R&D(Im not in it for money). So my findings will be some what discreate unless I find some sort of sort of revolution that will change the way us "regular" rotorheads build our "street" motors, please remember his products are primarily just dragged in 800-900hp vehicles there is no data collected on his products in a street driven vehicle, even tho John says there are a ton of people streeting them in PR I would still like some documentation.



Let me just say, I spoke with Johnathan yesreday for hours and he showed me some **** thats done no where in the counrty or world. Some of the machining stuff he does is unbelievible. He was in no way trying to push his products on me, he offered me numerous options on pretty much every thing that needs replacement. He is a very very nice man, I brought my whole motor there basically he rechecked everything in front of me and let me know what he thought he was actually right on with everything Ito had told me. NOT to mention with all his machining to be done and a full rebuild kit everything is still cheaper then all the competitors W/O machining done. Im real excited about this So hopefully with every buddys support we can change the rotary game for everones benifiet.Let me know what you guys think.

Thanks,

James

If you upload the pictures to a file sharing site like photobucket you can post up to 10 pictures per post using image tags around the link.
