2012 Complete LFX engine core available

Any interest let me know. Cyls #2 & #4 have low compression 40 psi after a dyno pull and melted my spark plugs in those cylinders.

Best is to go with the proven cams already available. App 40 RWHP gains. Let us know if you want to do them. And, the 3.6DI is not any easy engine to disassemble and put back together properly..


So where do I buy them from and how much?
