When looking at building an engine, there are definitely a lot of factors to consider. First and foremost, you need to figure out what it is that you’re building it for. Do you want a racing machine? Do you want something that’ll sound good and have a little bit of power behind it that you can use a cruise around with? Do you just want something that’s going to be interesting and good on gas?
