The next thing to buy is the engine, but I need some help with this. Im not going to race with my cuda, so I dont want to buy alot of expensive preformance parts to the engine.
But its fun to have alot of power so my thoughts is either the RSV1000 or the GXSR1000.

The RSV engine seems like its not that common in Sweden, but the GXSR1000 is easier to find.
So I have a few questions about them.

The biggest question about them now is the sump. If I use the gxsr, do I really NEED to use a dry sump, even if Im not going to race with it?
Is it easier to use the RSV engine because it allready have a dry sump, or is there any problems by using that engine?

I have looked at some drysump kits to the gxsr and it cost almost more than my engine budget :lol:

Any recomendations? Thanks
