    Hope so. Whether or not the paint work will be finished is another story.

    All the wiring harnesses are back in the car. I ran into some issues bending the stainless steel line. This causes me to circle back and purchase additional hose fittings and braided line so I'm hoping that will be the last of my fuel issues. I have the whole dash installed back in the car. Right now I need to replace the shift cable assembly and then I can finish putting the rest of the interior in. Engine assembly is on hold until my brothers engine builder friend is available to come help me out, which I'm hoping is soon. I'm still striving to meet the 7/16th dyno date, but things are certainly slipping.

        Yea I'm working through things as I can. Definitely diverting some effort because of these recent events. However I'm still trying to strive for the dates of CarCraft and the dyno tune.

        • Well I'm running behind on things, but the engine is going together next Sunday. I've got confirmation from my brother that his friend is available to assist with the assembly that Sunday. So if all goes well this thing should make some noise the week of 7/9.

          • When do you predict you will be getting it tuned and therefore have the final numbers?

            • Even if you missed your goals by a few weeks who cares. I think I missed mine by a year hah. I am still changing things up, upgrading and changing things. It never ends! I doubt it will run as well as you want at first, but even still youll get a good couple pulls and once you feel 10psi you will be a mad man to finish this up.

                It really depends on the shops schedule. I've got a fairly decent baseline tune I think with SCT PRP.

                                I'm not. I'm going to brush the whole block down, maybe polish some spots... and then clear coat it.
