We have a pair of batteries on a small cart for the Promod's that we plug them into for cold starts, damn 60 W oil. Save you a bit of weight. Upping the battery cable size from the trunk to the starter would help big time.

Well it shouldn't take too long to catch up. Ain't been much going on. A ProEFI rep, (Chris Delgado)will be at the shop Wednesday and Thursday to teach the class on the software and to be in attendance as Corey performs the tuning.

Prior to that we have to pull the front cradle back down and verify if it is the dry sump pan or the block girdle that has a very slow oil drip. The sincere hope is that it is only the oil pan. The girdle is tied in with the main caps as well and that would be a booger to manage.

No worries though, we'll get it done and be ready for the mile.

I saw a partial pic of the intake..... unusual.... is it super secret skunk works stuff?

Are there runners hiding in there? Or are you gonna make so much pressure they're no longer necessary?
