I wish ya'll weren't so far away. All this awesomeness shouldn't be spread so far apart. Some time in the future we need an MT Florida meet/dyno day.

We talked alittle bout that yesterday how everyone is either way down in Fl or up in Atlanta. We've only got a few guys up here in the Jax area.

I'm just about finished with the small things like plugging old holes and I ordered my coils and a new temp sensor yesterday. Still need an oil cooler and catch can before I drop the engine in

Haha, yea. I should get there within the next few weeks. I mean I hit 298 on a Mustang dyno which is well over the 300 mark on a dynojet.

I don't see why not. I did it with a stock head. How much boost do you plan to run? I just bought Gospeed's spare head so that I can convince myself to do some head work. I've never fooled with that though so I don't know.

I'll prolly only run 20psi and see what happens. Then if I get this super 60 I'm looking at I'll go back for a few more pulls

If you were close I'd do it for you no prob. I pretty much did mine 3 times before I got it how I wanted it but if I had to start over do another stock one I could get it done in a few quick hours.

Hell, that's almost worth me just sending it to you.

The runners are easy as hell to do and don't take much time at all. It's the cumbustion chambers that take longer since all the valves are so close together

Whever you're ready man. I've usually got lots of time on my hands at work. That's where I did all the headwork and assembly of my engine. I'm looking around at oil cooler stuff and relocation parts and don't know what I should order. I'm going to order the catch can you have from summit and don't know if I need anything else from them before I check out. Any help phil?

I'd be game for a Fl dyno day. I don't mind driving to orlando

I would but I'm going away with the family this weekend to Sixshooter's Lake house in GA. Lets look for a reputable dyno shop in Orlando and plan it from there.

Just what ever size fittings you plan to use. I didn't use the 1 fitting it came with I went bigger.

I need to come up with some kind of name, but having ****** in my business title seems like it'd be more likely to run people away than attract business

Hmmm

Wankerworks does have a ring to it
