Waking up at 630am to work. I'll drop in the motor tomorrow after work and hopefully everything turns up fine!

I think I'll cap it at 8500. I only usually rev out to 6.5-7k at the track.

8500 in 4th at the drag strip will be so dope

Looks awesome! Sounds like you have the same block as me, although yours has baller status with your name and all!

As for the dry sump, you should talk to MickTheGinge before spending lot's of money, he has one on his car now and I believe he said he wouldn't do it like that again.

Hope all goes in smoothly!

Yeah, I was looking at the element tuning kit. 2499+ your own hoses and fittings. Not bad at all.

Too tired to finish up the rest. Got 4 hours sleep and had a full day of work

Just need to put in the DP, tighten the bottom bell housing bolts, put in the IC piping, add fluids, prime engine, spark plugs, coil packs, and boom, should be in business
