    In fact it was a dyno environment but it was a chassis dyno. There was a bit of a run on but not much. The quick stop I believe was attributable to engine fail safes in the aftermarket ECU that...

    These are pieces I saw, picked up and viewed in similar amazement after engine disassembly. The failure did not happen as a low velocity no rpm soft landing. It happened on a dyno under wide open...

    The deburring time and effort is well spent, Kirk. If you have not yet selected a block you might want to look into what Ford ended up calling the Aluminator block. The block was originally used to...

    While your intentions are good, Jan, it is noteworthy that you did not buy the components at the normal retail price point. In fact you indicate you put off your purchase until a reduced price...

    I don't think you are the first but I also don't think this is a frequently pursued conversion, predominately because of the engine weight up front.

    How far along are you, Jim?

    You want to shoot for a 0.0018" to 0.0025" clearance, Matt. While you can run up to 0.003" relatively safely you begin to change the delivery of lubricant to different parts of the engine.
