    Finally got the heads back from getting cleaned up. Now they are ready to ship off to BPE Racing for stage 2 port and polish.

    Yep, I have one year left of school and then I will be whoring my body to flight students for time building. Sold the Contour on Wednesday to a guy from Lino Lakes, one of Ricker's friends or something he was sayin. Got kinda chapped on the price but its probably better than what I would have made on here. I just needed it gone to pay for the rest of my instrument rating. I'm driving an 06 Ranger with 40k and 4-wheel drive. I finally understand how enjoyable snow can be now. I voted for MN in that poll btw, I'll troll around if it comes here!

    Glad to hear. Well if your in the area don't hesitate to give me a buzz. I'm always up for a few beers and some BS'ing about cars and the like.

    Man, I'm new to this forum, and this is about the craziest thing I've ever seen. I have family in Michigan, and this might make a good excuse to visit them... then disappear for a day or 2 and come ogle your monster. Note to self: wear pants with lots of deep pockets, and grab all the shinies I can hide in them... Oh, damn, did I just type that..? My bad.

    BTW: The day you found out your block was finished, I was in Miami, Florida, purchasing my CSVT, then drove it 1300 miles home. That was an awesome road trip.

    Ha... well you'd be traveling to the wrong destination buddy. I live in Minnesota... not Michigan. Only thing in Michigan was my engine block, which was having provisions for oil squirters machined into it and the oil squirters installed by Kinetics Racing Engines.

    Looking good Mike.
    Are they going to flow them also?
    I don't recall seeing flow numbers on ported heads.

    I'll ask to see if that is included (probably not) and what it would cost to have that info.

    Actually it should be from my experience. You will you pay just to get a set flowed, but in my experiences the shop will give you a port flow number if they do a full P&P job.
    If they don't do at least one hole for free, I'd complain.
