    I saw make full day out of the tuning.

    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.

    It's gonna be tough to make it with my car. If my car comes it will be on a trailer most likely incomplete. It would be nice to have it painted with the carbon fiber work completed. Engine may have to wait till the MN meet I setup this summer.

    I'm going to try to assembly my heads tonight. So I'll have pictures of that. Going to hold off on powder coating my power steering pulley pulley until the car is painted.

    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.

    sooo clean!

    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...

    I would be very interested to see the power numbers before you go turbo on this setup...
