as long as you bring it back after the race in one piece
even if you get a parts list.. each team that has an engine program, gets the parts raw.. and put their own magic in them.. heads on a hendrick car will not look like a RCR head in the ports or chamber.. at this level.. every little tiny thing makes a difference..
when and if you see an RCR head on those used racing part sites. they've already move past that tech.. the ro7 that I has the honor of helping see built.. every port is different, the cam lobes are different for every cyl.. all to get as equal a/f to every cyl..
the parts list is the easy part, the labor put into everything is the difference..
