I have a blown 748 engine and am considering replacing the engine with a 996 engine or possibly a 848 engine, The bike is a 2001 748e. I'm looking for some input. Thanks for the replies!
Not true on the TB's from a 748 to 996....single inject to dual injector only difference...in fact I got more power out of my single injector 748 TB's (120 rwhp 76 ft.tq.) then I did the 996 so I went back and put the 748's back on the bike.don't forget a new set of throttle bodies otherwise you will be restricted by the smaller 748 body. New gearing unless you are planning on stunting
I would change to 525 chain and sprockets but that me.
Easy and good swap, did one last year and the customer loved it.
I have to agree with Namor, depending on what your plans are going forward with more modification (valves, cams, porting & polishing, etc.) there's no benefit in your current state.....but I could be wrong!any benefits from running 916 tbs on a 853 over 748 tbs? am rebuilding a 853 motor and have unshrouded the combustion chamber for better fuel flow.
