I attribute the 2332 reliability aspect to a mild cam and 8:1 compression along with adequate cooling and oil. At 10:1 it would likely do wheelies. It is the largest displacement etc I would consider for street use. Couple that with good suspension and rubber, a well modified tranny, proper fuel system, and careful setup (timing jetting etc) and you should have a killer rig. Only thing I could improve upon now is a smoother shifter and I'm working on that. Otherwise I have been a happy camper for better than a year now. And it's not hard on the eyes either. I think you will be happy. Just stay clear of Ol John Boy. You don't want to get any of that on you. Not one of mankind's greatest accomplishment.
