hmm, those comp cams valve covers are bitchin.

It seems Z's and AR's should come as a package deal.

Well yeah. Thats why I need a rollcage, so I can bolt a gun rack to it.

I ordered my bracket today. How long did it take to get yours?

Got my Alan Grove alt bracket in the mail yesterday and put it in last night. Super sweet, makes you wonder why GM didn't do it that way!

I love the reflection of the hands holding the camera, Hanns :D It took me a second or two before I saw that. I love your engine---I want to hug it.

And still gorgeous, too, Hanns...I've always admired that motor....actually it is your fault I started down that long path myself...at least I have someone to blame it on....:o) Looks like you can't let Davy get too close, or there might be a single turbo four cylinder in the future...:o)

Thanks for the comments Davy and Wayne. I tried to hug the engine once while it was running and the turbos didn't like it... I got burned!!

Wayne, you have done a great job with your TTv8 installation and I'm following every post.

Hanns,

Thank you for the kudo's...much appreciated. Getting closer...it is at a friends shop and we are putting the Electromotive system on it...he also has a dyno, so it will go on once we break it in and change oil, etc and get it tuned up. Business has got me going crazy, but I'm hoping by the end of the month.

I was just out your way going back and forth between Ontario and Camp Pendleton on the 15 and 76 but had such a short time frame that I didn't get a chance to touch bases. Besides, all the rain y'all had toward the end of the week was crazy. Maybe next time...
