does anyone know if the set-up could possible work on a street application? maybe not at the 300 crank horse mark but in a slightly milder state? searches have only shown debates on sr vs ka and the fact that the set-up make the power and a few specifics, but i jus posted to see if this known set up is track only?

The NASport motors run over 13:1 compression IIRC -- you won't be able to get away with that on pump gas. Plus, from what I'm told, the cams are SUPER lumpy. I wouldn't be surprised if they idled at 1500 RPM -- or more.

There's a KA in a 510 that makes 240 crank hp; the owner claims its streetable. Of course, I think it was also built by Rebello -- $$$.

I recently saw a 220hp KA and it was streetable based on look and sound. The owner runs a different map depending on the gas he runs.
