Please stay on topic.

Be a witness, as I excersize my exorcism
The evil that lurks within the sin, the terrorism
Possessed by evil spirits, voices from the dead
I come forth with gravediggaz in a head full of dread
I've been examined ever since I was seamen
They took a sonogram and seen the image of a demon
At birth the nurses surrounded my with needles
and drugged me all up with the deseases of evil
Grew up in hell, now I dwell, in an Islamic Temple
I'm fighting a holy war in the mental
Look deep into my eyes, you'll see visions of death
Possessed by homicide is what I'm obsessed

My laptop just ate crap so updates to this thread will slow down until I get it back. Posting this from my phone now.

No, but everything I was able to find said that people were not having any issues with this filter and e85. If you have first hand experience with this filter and e85 I'd like to hear about it. This also won't be running e85 initially, I'm just preparing for the future when the motor gets built.

Car will be driven by me. I'd like to think I'm pretty quick, race spec miata and am usually within a half second to second of pole. Most recent time I drove Savingtons car (after not having driven anything with power for over a year), in one session I was only a second off his best time of the day. I believe he had the fastest lap of the day and mine was second fastest. The goal is to have this be faster than his turbo car, but that is obviously not a simple goal to achieve.

Sweet build. I kinda wish I did a V8 instead of a turbo. Not enough $$$ though. What is the initial power goal and what do you think you'll eventually get to?

Once it's dialed in it should be every bit as fast as my black car is.

Picked up a couple goodies that should help get this build going.





Also think I have decided on Honda Competition White for the color, with an orange cage, wheels, wing endplates, etc.

And a quick picture of the new shop, as of 2 weeks ago:

Shift linkage with heims is where it's at. Just succumbed to the limp lever in P-car. Old antiquated ball and cup are going to be updated to the "RS" Golden Rod. Same as above...

I don't know, but same size and external shape as my old 3-speed peanut in the '61 Chevy Stepside I had. The bearings alone were $600 at the time 10 yrs. ago.
