A friend of mine was at the nopi race in dallas with his all motor car and noticed Norris(K powered insight) broke often.He mentioned that it was crank realted and that the crank was twisting with that much rpm.Im not sure as too how much truth is in this,as I have been working with K motors since 2002 and they seem to be much stouter in every area than the B engines.But also mentioned to me about about the crank skunk was running and that they rarely ever break.
Question is,are the K series crank weak when it comes to high rpm?Ive never taken one that high with as much power as Norris put's out.

weak? no. when's the last time you heard of one breaking or when's the last time you heard of crank walk?

bearings tend to get beat the hell up though.

There is a turbo a3 that had crank walk on ephatch...
I think I vaguely remember that thread. However, I don't think that guy ever checked his main bearing journals to see if there was actually crank walk or if his bearings toasted for other reasons. Making such diagnosis without proper inspection of the block carries little weight IMO.
