Grande project

I’ve stripped the Grande down to the frame and cleaned it. Then I thought , the subframe has a 30 mph sticker. So maybe I should kick it up a bit with another Olympia kit. I had success with the Bravo ,40 mph so far.and the only reason is because the serial numbers don’t match on the engine and frame. The engine looks good , but since everything apart ....?

I would say bore out the intake and expand in intake patch, that will get you some more mph, as well as shaving off the little brass restrictor on the variator. That would get you to around 35-37 mph for free, and then you can kit it if you like.
