The forged internals were a huge selling point for track abuse and anyone that wanted to push the power limits of the stock block further. The EJ207 would have been a better choice then.

I wonder if Killer B will still be pursuing their S209 purchase..
I don't think we'll know, for sure, until someone manages to break one of those blocks apart, but it sure appears like it - aside from some valve train changes.

The removal of the forged internals really put a dent in my desire for an S209; however, I'm still going to make an effort to obtain one, but I won't be upset if doesn't work out.

I'm not in a hurry to take a bath on my 7.1 mile RA, while chasing an S209, that'll be marked up into oblivion, and it all sounds less and less like a worthwhile proposition.

I'll probably end up in the same boat and simply enjoy owning an RA.
