Talking Well... its THAT time.. PICS added

You ask what time??? Time to put the SVT back together.

Hopefully It'll be up and running by Sunday... and if not, a day or two later.

For now I'm putting STOCK rods and pistons back in it...... but if everything goes right there will be a MAJOR build before Christmas.

I just hope everything goes smooth... I'm so tired of working on cars that EVERYTHING seems to go wrong..... Sorta like egbertnr's SVT

Good to see you are going to have you car back running soon. We will have to see who will make 400fwhp first. I am hoping to do that in one or two months, but we will see.

I wont be making 400 with the stock pistons/rods..... I did manage a 386whp run before settling for 360whp for the ride home.

How much boost did you run at that 386whp dyno run?

Well we just encountered all kind of install problems. It took way longer then it should have. The important thing is that its on now and running strong aside from the clutch that is slowly going. Which I knew would happen. Running about 10psi which is a bit more then I wanted but thats the spring I have!
