in the first link is the starter I have I got it used and it has served me well.it has been in several motor combos 1 motor was 14.5:1cr and it has always been on a 16 volt system.

cheaper but will work good as well.

I've blown up all of them.  Best bang for the buck is still the one Fabio mentioned. I have a CVR on mine now, and it's working fine, but it's twice as much.

Use the parts store F350 unit.  Most of 'em offer a lifetime warranty, so no matter how many you blow up, you'll only buy one. Wink   I use one and it works great.

My compression ain't all that high, but I know of lots of guys who use it with big inches and big compression...apparently Copperhead included. Wink

Now that's dedication to saving weight. "Swiss cheesing" a car, taken to extremes. Laughing 

That reminds me...The NASCAR guys used to do that to their carb mounting studs. It was a cheater's way of getting more air into a restrictor plate engine. Suspect

15.3:1 and use a stock 90's starter with a 16 volt battery. Works great. DB electric has them around 60 bucks on the internet
