Update: 4.6.2010

got home yesterday evening and had a nice package on my door step... billet rods are in...Finally!!!...

some pics

stock rods....




pauter billet rods








picture of stock and pauter billet side by side....


well that was some good news...now for some not so good news...

dropped rods off at engine builder this morning and he calls after lunch...
wrist pins for piston are too small for rods...!?!?!?!...
mic'd the new rods, specs are same as factory rods... new rods are correct...
checked specs/spec sheet on pistons... wrist pins are smaller diameter than factory...called wiseco explained stated someone would call me back tomorrow with solutions...
thought build would be starting now that i have rods....looks like its back on hold at least until piston/wrist pin issue is solved...
