    Don't do it!! Stick with your belt drive. Why go backwards?

    Hope you have a sense of humor

    Gear drives transfer harmonics from the crank to the cam and valve train and usually require drilling of the front main cap and or machining for fit up to the block as well.

    I might suggest that you record the SOUND of some other racers blower during a burn out and put it on your I- pod (or something like that), then listen to it whenever your engine is running if it makes you happier, but if you want to go fast with less moving parts, stay with today's technology and use the belt drive.
