The Latest Updates...

Well, where do i start.
 
  • I updated PAGE 9 with 16 more pictures and a bunch more info./updates and some changes to my plans. 
 
  • For starters, I repainted my timing cover and s/c bracket.  after drying for several days, it was too light for me, and took away from that sinister look i am going for.  I used the same paint, only instead of gray primer, i used a 1400 degree high temp flat black as a base coat.  The result was a nice dark charcoal color.  There is a HUGE difference between a gray base and a black base!
 
  • I also painted a few more parts (pictures on page 9).  Includes Water Pump, Heads, EGR
 
  • As of Tuesday 12/12/06, the engine went into the machine shop FINALLY! 
    They are hot tanking it (cleaning it) and boring/honing the cylinders .20 over.  They are also handling the assembly of the long block for me.  Should have it back sometime late January!
 
  • Today, 12/14/06 I received some goodies in the mail!
    Forged MMR Manley 18cc dished pistons .20 overbore and a SpeedPro moly file-fit piston ring set.
 
  • I also bought a set of cams as well.  Houston Performance Stage 2 Blower Cams.  (Thanks to Mug11)  Hopefully these will be in tomorrow.  I hope i can use them...the machine shop has a slight concern that they may not work without fly-cutting the pistons (which i want to avoid...EXPENSIVE!).  If this is the case, they will be sold and I will buy a different set.  Mug11 gave me a killer deal that i could'nt pass up.  But i wont know until they try them and check for PTV clearence.
  
I still have a CRAP LOAD of parts to buy (stay tuned)... but right now, i have to focus my $$ towards 
and the machine shop (going to be around $1500+ or so in parts and labor)  I am basically at a stand still now anyway until the engine gets back.  all i can do is buy more parts
