Re: Carl's Pettit Project MKII

Well there should be....33% more surface area and they are geared to give 9-11PSI which us up from the 6-8PSI from the original set up. So along with all the porting, lightweight flywheel, light weight pulleys, full balancing and other mods this should go quite well im expecting 300ish at the wheels
