These motors are unreal tuff as far as taking them for just over 300 hp and near doubling it or more.

Damn, got scrap metal carnage all over the place. Will those pistons be of ANY use if not all but at least one?

They are all banged up, so we are replacing them all.

Slowly. Had a bit of miscommunication with the rods. Aaron was leaving town just as they were supposed to go from the original fabricator to the one that could deal with the large journals. They sat on someones desk for a week. All's good now and it looks like those and the new pistons will be getting here about the same time.

I'll be at the shop on Friday, so I'll have a better feel for the timeline after that. Also going to test drive a Sonic. Wife hates her Focus so we are looking for a replacement. I want an RS but she wants an auto, so I'm not as excited as I could be.

Well, didn't get much of a chance to talk to Aaron and Ryan. I think the rods and pistons will be in within a few weeks. The new torque converter will be a while, but the one I have now works really well so the only thing we are missing is being able to lock it up on the dyno. That's not a big loss IMHO. The multi disk may be more efficient than what I have now, but we won't know until it's done.

I got to see Rhino's flycut job and it looks real good. I didn't see them actually do it, but I got to see the tool and they described how they did it. All I can say is that's so much easier than the old school technique. Results look perfect, too.

Finally, they had an auto Sonic RS so that's what the wife drove home. She likes it and now wants some custom stripes LOL. I'll post a pic in a little while. They are cute little cars.
