Alright for all of you that have been following my "dyno experience"- I visited the shop today and after all the parts were there it was in the re-assembly stage! What a sight to see with that new distributor, msd coil, Ford Racing wires, bigger carb, new water pump.

The shop had to modify the bracket for the fan to fit the radiator so that along with the MSD 6AL might have been put in after I left or Tuesday morning. He said he "hoped" to have it on the dyno! FINALLY AFTER 2 WEEKS! WOOO HOOO!

Hopefully some numbers for you guys/gals tomorrow!

I would recommend finding a roller 302 block for the stroker kit. Yeah they are charging me for the dyno time its about $200 for tunning and pulls. Oh man the cost of the build- I did the engine a year and a half ago. I think the kit (crank rods pistons bearings rings) was around 1200-1500? Then you have to have the block notched for clearance for the rods. Check with a machine shop before you take this journey on.
Good luck to you if you do!

I am in Sanford Florida. I am moving though in a week to Texas. PM me if you have more questions I can find reciepts and whatknot if your more interested in everything.
