Well, my lucky engine got head today! And it will again by monday! I had to stop in the middle because my girlfriend was coming over.

But, I leave for berkeley in 2 weeks, the hope is to get the twin turbo 5.0 driving at least once before I go! I'm running out of money quick, this fuel injection crap is expensive once you push the 400 HP mark!

As for the heads, i put on some positive type valve seals, then used a sanding drum on the air grinder (actually 3 of them) to polish the outer wall of the chambers, and I took off the small ridge shrouding the valves from the quench area. I hope to have increased low and high lift flow a bit and drop compression for the turbos. We'll see how that goes. No time to CC all the chambers.

On a last note, i got some rust pits on the sealing surface of the head, and made some really shallow guages with the sanding roll, so i wire wheeled them smoothe and liberally used copper gasket sealer spray crap on the head and gasket. If i blow a HG with the thing running pig rich it will be time for some GT40's or better (but that will be another summer)

You're going to stop in Davis on your way and show me that car so we can take pictures, right!?


I want a ride! =0

I'd hate to need to abuse my administrative authority in the UC system's computers and find out where your dorm room is and where you park your car...... :)

Nah the car stays within 10 miles of my house... for obvious reasons :D Although it IS perfect for street racing, no interior at all, no A/C, just a rolling shell that accelerates really quickly
