Bored, now looking for new build

Guys
Just stripped my GSXR 1000 quad for painting, but now want to do another build.

It will be the same idea, quad frame, running gear, with a motorcycle engine

This will be street legal and built for the road use, but after doing a few 1/4 miles on my old one, would like to continue with this aspect as I do love it

So what the best engine?

GSXR1000
Hayabusa
Or another make

Was thinking about turbo, but not sure if my pockets are deep enough to fund that build.
So was looking into nitrous

I have read that the k1-3 are the stronger engines, so would I be better buying one, spending some money on internals(if so what?) and then going for a 100 shot (for the strip only)
Or buying a more expensive newer engine.

Hope this makes sense

Many thanks

No idea, but from what Iíve seen on the internet (so must be true), I see more Busaís with nitrous or turbos than the 1kís.

Good luck and keep us posted. Either way Iím sure itíll be a total blast.

I've heard of Busa's being bumped up to 400-500 hp.
That would be hard to beat.

OK guys I hear you,
Is any busa engine better than another,?
I have seen some that are "unrestricted" with 220mph clocks,
What mods do they require for NoS

Cheers

Gen 2 (2008-current) are an overall better motor. No 2nd gear issue in the trans, and they just overall fixed issues that the Gen 1 had.

Gen 1 is better if you plan to bore and go crazy that way. Or if you wanna spray a big shot.

Gen 2 has higher compression ratio than Gen 1 I believe. You can also do WAY more thru ecu with a Gen 2.

Nitrous, typical weak points. Some say valves need changed, but def HD valve springs. And a good tune / tuner

OK, thanks for the in depth reply, I would like a 100 shot of NoS, not sure of that's big or not......

If I can find a complete engine and running gear is there anything to look for / look out for

Many thanks Neil

Anyone......
Also the busa engine is about £2000.00 more expensive than a 1000, would the £2000 be better spent on internals,
Hope this make sense

A 40 shot on stock internals is pushing the limits, so if you're going to do a 100 shot both will have to be upgraded

Yeah I did know you could do a 40 shot and it might be ok.
Just trying to work out what engines best, 1000 or busa, that's 2k more expensive
