Who is Jin? (919)

So I have a 919 Turbo (stock motor) and I want to rebuild the motor with lots of goodies but have too many questions to go into it blind. I keep reading stuff about Jin's Conquest on the 919 but can't actually seem to find any actual info on trials. who is his jin? what has he done?

First, welcome to wristtwisters....

Second...who indeed is this Jin, and where have you read about him? you say you have a turbo on an otherwise stock motor? tell us about it, and show pics if you've got em!

Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!

Jin's conquest of the 919 More like Jin's total destruction of the 919. He is long gone, another tuner wannabee who has vanished, never to be heard of.

Jin of the North, Max knows him, tuned a 919 to the extent that he shaved/decked it, swapped the cams (welding on his own pulse sensor) and mod'd a Ti Exhaust (after great effort).

He also uncovered an early documentation error in the 919 manual.

Once running, he was very happy w/ the performance of the 9r.
He ran through a number of trials getting to that point including torching an ECU.

Others have done much more to the 919 powerplant, Alexa, Fisher and more...

I trust Jin is still up there somewhere, VT or further north, doing his thing. I would have to dig deep to find his email.
