I have read about it on 4cycle. If the crank journal is the same size it should work out fine for me.

Sent yet another Email to PA asking for technical details.

They seem to have the collective IQ of a block wood and still think the enine is a 6.5

Let me tell you something.
There is a lot of interest in this engine because of its displacement.
How often do you hear MDB take an interest in something like this?

It would apear from the technical info this engine has a 71mm bore ( VS the 68 standard clone ). IF and this is a big one now, the liner is large enough to over bore further, the castings are as good and strong as they apear to be ( based on my observation of the PA engine that unfortunately I can't buy without a presure washer attached ) AND still shares a common crank and cam witht he GX200 then guys like MDB will be punching them out to what ever the limits..

My gut feeling is a 71mm piston is probably a shoe in. there are 72s out there and maybe more that will fit....

To add to the interest the ARC long rod with these pistons is a drop in but the decks need to be dropped something on the order of .020 give or take.
Ya a bad ass 232cc clone is a real possibility with no other work than boring and decking

A best case scenario would be if the block had a little taller deck, more crank case space, a little more crank stroke with the same journal as the Honda/clone with just a bigger bore. But that's asking for way to much.

The main thing is if it can fit all the after market stuff, but just has a bigger piston. I currently have a motor with a 70mm piston, puts it at 208cc. Many people want a motor like it, but I cannot find any more of those 70mm pistons. If this motor comes with a 71mm piston, but fits all the current gx200/clone parts it would dominate the market if it's at a far price.
