So I have come to the point where I just don't think I can get much more out of my stock 78 motor, and I have found a guy that has the goods to hook me up with just about whatever parts I need to build an Express Omega, the penultimate express, as there can always be one better. I have been reading through posts for a couple days here, props to Jax184, Derek, Hawkster, and I.R.A. rick for the valuable info left through the years. At this point, I am going one of two directions and I can't choose which.
1. Get a two speed engine from 80 on, bolt it on, get the hp CDI and combined with all my other express shit rip it up, or on the more ambitious side,
2. Get an urban engine off of an NU50 and swap it on there. I know this one has more potential, but it also seems like a lot more possibilities for complications.
I just want some advice from guys who have done either or both of these swaps. I already have the carb worked out I think, but I hear that the newer express engines have a throttle cable that splits into three different cables? What the hell is that about? I should clarify that since it will be kitted from the get go, the oil injector/pump, auto choke, top end and any issues arising from any of those parts will be a non issue.
I am super pumped, I already love the looks of people seeing a screaming express on the road, I can't wait to see the reaction to a screaming express passing them!
One last thing, anyone know how compatible sr/nx parts are with nu/urban parts?
