LTR450 Builder?
« on: May 21, 2014, 06:32:46 pm »
Does anyone know of a good engine builder for the LTR? I just picked one up for 1,000 bucks and looking to build her up. I know 1st gear is out in it.

I used a company out of florida called williams performance. we put together a pretty quick 474 motor. Its held together for 2 years and still runs real good. I'll dig out aq phone number and post it up.

I spoke with Chris at Williams Performance. He seems like a great guy to deal with and his prices are very affordable. I am going to try his shop, on this build.

Glad to hear rupton88! I am very satisfied with my setup. It does everything well.  Predictable and controllable power. and a lot of it! I've outgunned a lot of bigger motors with the 474 setup. I get a lot of people scratching their heads when they ask how big the motor is lol. Chris advised me against the 474, he said his 450 setups are just as strong. But i wanted a bit extra as always.

You might want to contact Lindsay Machine Racing (LMR) they are at 8755 South 250 W Cottage in Sandy Utah.   801 561-7081

Davey is the owner and such a great guy.  They did all the frame work on LT500 and build a lot of ultra kool quads.  Skyler is a quad encyclopedia. they call him rain man.
I have dynod my raptor there before and i will have them do a 776 big bore stroker raptor motor this winter.   mike
