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 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!

(Please see my 'Go Fund Me' page) JK

It is wrong that this post gets my blood pumping?
