IF 6 people will commit, I can have A14 style billet crankshafts built here in the US for $2100 each.

Shipping to your location would be extra, and a deposit would be required. Time frame would be about 2 months.

Are six people interested?
Thank you, Peter Zekert

Thats the thing there are prob 2 people max

I think the A12 one you have advertised is a bargain
for race guys, maybe Sykine is interested if anyone
for the stock a12 stroke, however he seems to have
had enough success with the stock as he is using turbo
not 10k rpm normally aspirated tunes.

Hi D,
For many years I used stock A14 cranks, but I would only use the 9000-9800 rpm sparingly. On the dyno, operators can see a harmonic at around 7800 rpm due to crankshaft flex.

Now with billet cranks, I am routinely using 9600-10,000 rpm.

I agree that there are probably only 1-2 that want to purchase. But, I had to ask!
Peter

I think its a great thing to ask, not many go out of their way to offer
these kinds of options at all so very considerate of you.

TBH the BMW M10 from the bmw 2002 has Euro freaks frustrated at no
billet crank offering for under 8000usd. Some have used the s14 evo
crankshaft from that model`s M3 but just as expensive.

Those guys would jump at a 3k usd offer for a 88-90mm crankshaft
that could make their M10 engines with 89mm bores able to reach 2.3-2.4L

If I had the connections I would have offered such a crank 25 years ago
when toying with my 1602 and 2002 tii turbo.

My butcher buddy used to get those rpm from old Corollas K series engines
before grenading themselves to make way for other junkyard $50 a pop 3K.
I was cruel but was often amusing to hear him coming over from miles away to
end up needing a tow home after arriving with cluttering bucket of shrapnel
or blowing up in front of our rental house.
