    it is, that's not as cut and dry as it looks, theres bracing added, and about as far into the k member as u can go. From what I can remember you'll be very hard pressed to get a enclosed hole thru it, also the steering rack is directly above those cuts. So close that I added head shields

    Got the Teksid engine. Anyone need B heads to work on?

    Getting ready to pull heads off and get a look at the bores. Problem is, it's -9 here in Bufffalo, and three feet of snow. No heat in the garage, so it can wait a bit.

    Sourcing heads now.

    Any one with a good used forged crank?

    And, thoughts on just .020 over or add a stroker crank to get 302 CID?

    Getting the block stripped. Harmonic balancer is being a pip. I have been giving it a couple clicks a day. Maybe its frozen. 20 degrees here and wind is straight out of the North, blowing directly into my garage. BRRRRRR.

    Where do I find the appropriate timing cover? I am leaving my OEM engine stock and whole. Picking up heads this weekend.

    And, who is providing a good race transmission? I have a core ready to swap out for one ready to go.

    The 2C5E-6C064-DB head came out for '04 and had nine plug threads.

    Note the last two letters. I am actually in search of DC heads, but they are hard to find.

    I am looking to head north of 650 HP. These damn Hellcats & Demons need some Mercury competition. I'm not sure I'll get there, but I sure am going to try.

    I may have to go from Trilogy to Whipple. I may have to add NO2. I may have to remove my passenger and rear seats..... Hence the teksid and searching for a forged crank.

    I'll definitely need wrinkle wall slicks!

    It is wrong that this post gets my blood pumping?

    One DB and on DC head acquired. Still need to tear everything down. This sux having to buy four cams, 32 valves, springs and so on. Trying to get the bare heads and block into shop for hot tank and checked out.

    75 MPH winds and 20 degrees is no time to work in an unheated garage. I hate winter!

    Anyone have a good forged crank available?

    I agree, everything has been on hold until the weather breaks for me.

    I know what you mean drag city about the springs and valves but its part of what makes these engines great.

    I have also wanted to do my own heads so before i even get to springs and vavles i am trying to locate the tools and machines to do seats, guides, porting.... spring tester....

    gee golly... It will be worth it though. all the little details pay off.

    I was trying to figure out how to get a matched spring rate set of springs without having to buy 10 sets....
