So yeah going JDM you have alot better chance at get a low mileage good motor
but you are not garenteed to get the one you want.
That's disheartening I thought your price shipped to your door for the engine was a little low for a RBB K24A, so that makes more sense now that you found out it was just the base motor. Your motor is more like the JDM version of the USDM K24A4, which is low compression and 2 lobe, as you have discovered. If you want to compete in that Gridlife class then your hands are tied, and you will have to sell this motor for the correct motor, right?

You should be able to sell it to someone wanting a low compression motor for a turbo build who only has pump gas and not E85. Vtech isn’t needed if someone just wants to run big cams on the track, so you might find someone at Gridlife who wants a motor or spare motor.

I feel for you. The guy tried to sell me on a low compression K24A, before I insisted I only wanted the RBB.

Flattened the fuel line cover.

Is it FedEX? If so then this explains a lot. I think the shipping companies are running their B and C teams.

That is strange. R&L is a really good freight company.

So I got the 2 lobe motor stripped back down, rmvd all t the shiny new parts & oil pump off it. Got it mostly rebuilt. Then got the new 3 lobe motor completely stripped down & ready to build it back up.
...I'm getting pretty good at working on these engines already lol
