Eddie, advice please!

Eddie, im getting ready to do a BB kit and was wondering what your thoughts are on the JE 450 kit, reliability and also performance. Im already sold on the Athena 434 kit but I would rather go to 450cc if its all the same. Thanks in advance :excuseme:

Not a better plan,, uses a 95mm bore, many have head gasket sealing issues.

94mm cylinder works kit is the best bang for the buck.

chances of head gasket issues go way up when you get over 94mm bore. thats not to say you cant have a 95mm bore be reliable.ive done it,but the incidence of head gasket issues is way higher.

If price was not an issue, would you still go with the CW kit, or would you go with Athena?

As always Eddie, thank you for your help. Thank you as well Bronco :excuseme:
