He advanced the timing and increased the carburetor jets twice each.

This has the original Insight 5-speed, a go-cart CVT, and a belt drive.

How many losses does he have?!

He modified the camshaft, installed a high-compression cylinder head, stainless steel valves, 18-pound valve springs, and ARC billet connecting rod, and an ARC billet flywheel that didn't cool enough, so he removed it.

I felt disappointed that he didn't find a flywheel that cool adequately or modify it.

He installed an oil pump and upgraded the carburetor, a DynoCams cam, custom header exhaust, a better spark plug, and governor delete.

He tried running the CVT without all of the pucks and it kept failing, so he drilled out the steel weights in the rubber pucks, and something else broke.

He said that he would continue to modify it, but it must have been in episode 13.
