needs moar pictures!
I had to read this again. The cam info is especially interesting regarding the later engines, ST220, Escape, etc. Very nice work, I don't think I've seen anything this complete ever. When a meet gets set up this spring/summer I'll definitely be there to check this out.

Cylinder head assembly started tonight. I finished installed all the valves, valve springs, retainers, keepers, and oil plugs on the front head. All I got to say is installing those keepers is a major PITA. Took me 2-1/2 hrs to clean, prep, and assembly the one head. Grant it I did have a few beers and I had to use my blast cabinet to clean off the plugs.
Now all I have to do is order new lifters and I can complete the cylinder head assembly. Well that and do this to the rear head as well... ugh.
your going with an ST220 UIM and LIM right? are the heads port matched to the LIM? I know there's up to a 3/32 lip of aluminum head showing through the plastic LIM on my engine...
I had to fight off the urge to hunt down my porting bit and soften that up some... but I think it'll happen in the future...
So about how much mulah you got just in the heads?
I would be very interested to see the power numbers before you go turbo on this setup...
