    Busy indeed. The asplosion of my engine in New Jersey prompted an engine rebuild, and while the motor was out, I did a few other things.

    Strange C-Clip eliminators with the tapered bearing option. Hoping this cuts down on pad knockback and lets me get more than a few events out of a set of rear bearings:

    Transmission Temp, oil temp, fuel pressure, and transmission pressure sensors plumbed and wired in:

    To give me enough heat dissipating ability to get through more than one event on a set of rotors, new front brakes. Wilwood Superlite 6R with the 13" floating hat directional vane rotors and Hawk HP+ pads:

    And the pièce de résistance, a 4.1L stroker with a 4340 forged steel crank, Molnar rods, Carillo forged slugs, a comp roller, and fully ported iron heads and intake, with all the trimmings:

    All that's left is the MS3Pro PnP, which should be released any day now.

    Sadly, all this work will likely only move me from mid-pack to top third, because I'm sure the competition hasn't stood still over the winter, either. Actually, I know it hasn't. UMI just put a bunch of functional Aero on the Green Machine and they're building a 600+hp 427 for it. It's a tall order going against shop built cars, but I'm going to have a go at it anyway. Doing three Optima events, Midwest Muscle Car Challenge, going to try for at least two of the Optima AutoX-only weekends, plus the SCCA CAM challenge in August, a full local season, and if things go well, I may even try for the SCCA Nats in September.

    Stay tuned!

    :eek:

    How about a bit of paint on that A-Arm bushing guard? :D

    Everything else looks great!

    Ha!
    Nobody can see it with the engine in the car and the wheels on. And it shows character.
