    how are they comparing to stock?

    For handling, buy the GT3.
    If you are looking for all three, buy the Noble. "

    So far they are much nicer but time will tell. They aredirection so they actually pull air thru to help cool.
    I am not sure on the nobles but the bells on the Rossionare made of unknown aluminum composition so I am also making new bells from7075 aluminum to try to mitigate the warping from the dissimilar metals until Ifinish the full floating rotor test.
    Design is done and in manufacturing

    FYI
    7075 is an aircraft grade

    Yes it is but it is also what is used to make bells arealso made of that material. One of the race teams in the area run AP Racingbrakes and I had the material of the AP Racing bells analyze and that is whatthey are made with. It makes sense since 7075 has less thermal expansion thanlower grades of aluminum reducing thermal distortion.

    Good stuff, Jeff. It would be interesting to have a closer look at our turbine compressor blades to see if they are forward-curved for volume or backward-inclined for pressure. From the reference you found, the turbine's high rotational speed might together with our engines need for elevated manifold pressure might argue in favor of bacward-inclined.

    Are there left handed and right handed castings?

    it's mandatory if you want the "veins" inside to work properly, no, and the "directionnal rotor" kind of lead me to believe it is
