The car has definitely come along well...
  • Still awaiting the critical fuel injector mod, once in, I can install the piggy-back, tune and dyno
  • The tranny is being built right now for the swap
  • The engine block is being completed for the forged piston fitment
  • expect the built second engine to be complete within a few weeks. Looking forward to the swap.
  • Paint will probably happen in mid December, if not in January...

Still keeping it going...

Mike and I spoke...I drop off the car tomorrow. They will complete the catch can installation and plug off part of the PCV system, along with the rerouting of this system to allow it to fuction properly but stop the oil leak. They are installing the 6" flex tube in my exhausts, and finishing the raising and adjustment of the exhausts. The rear cam seal that blew out and is the cause of the oil leak will be resealed as well...therefore stopping my oil leak.

Tis is on the schedule for tomorrow...

The Rear BBK's came in. I now can install the big brakes this weekend...Excited about that.

I had to replace my AC compressor today... The cost of a brand new compressor... But, I now have a totally new and updated AC system...From new AC lines, dryer, and compressor, to conversion of the system to R134A.

I am really glad the oil leak is getting fixed...

Damn, by the time I swap the new and built tranny, swap the new and built engine, with all of the mods I had made during the last few years, this car will be a brand new car again, only better.... Kinda like having a 2007 SC400....

so who's the nimrod that loosened the right side valve cover? and CAUSED the oil leak? you need to keep that sucker away from other people. seems like everytime it's in franks shop, someone else has fux0r3d with something.

That happened when it was at trinity, or at the shop before that....I do not know which one...Just disappointing as hell that there are so many ****-ant shops around that have absolutely no idea what they are doing when it comes to performance car-crafting, but claim that they do...

That engine is being balanced and blue-printed as I write this reply...If time permits, and the fuel mod comes in for the eight additional injectors, then sometime in late December...If not, then in January 2007. Along with the new tranny...
