Should be getting long block together this week and have it in the car ready for tuning next week. Busy at work, but may get by the shop on Friday.

Sorry, but since I'm not going to CFest I told them not to try and rush. It'll get done though, so hang in there.

Not this year. Rhino and I have been talking about it for winter or next summer. Just got to get his mind off the giggle gas and focused on the current VVT tuning. Then we can spec the right cams.

Matt will have a better idea, but my guess is you would benefit from some exhaust porting and exhaust cam changes. When you get a properly sized turbo on there then you can worry about the intake side and getting the phasing just right. For now, focus on taking advantage of the lowend torque you can make.

Water cooling will be nice.

I think Matt and Rhyno use the same guy for custom cams, so we'll keep you guys in the loop when we start.

Edit: sorry, meant long block. Not getting enough sleep lately.

Will be interesting to see what you come up with for cams. Nice job on the short block.

Motor is back in and the beast is running again!

Unfortunately, can't do the tuning yet because the slicks are still on it and I have the lugs for the street tires at the house. Hopefully I can get by there on Friday and we can tune the thing.
