I'm an above average tuner. I not worried there. 11.0. 91 octane and alchy. Not bad. Stock long block with zero knock and not turned up yet. Street tune.
First in line for the Cas v4r , pending verification and pic'sEveryone was way to late. I bought a used stock engine from someone in Iowa. Temp use it. Local Iowa builder is going to rebuild my original engine stock and use the other block for a full forged 4.1. He knows what he's doing. He is also getting me off my 1007 Felpro heads requirement which is discontinued to mill them and I got RJC head gasket kit and his nice front mount intercooler to replace my CASV4R. I also got a TON of parts from gbody.com and Full Throttle. Ordered a torque converter, valve springs and a 62/66 turbo from Full Throttle. They are doing nice work for me.
I called and lag responded from a top builder but it's to late. I'm deep in having to do other things even though I have the money to do otherwise.
Due to lag responses I had to improvise to other options.
