Well I still havent had enough time to work on the new engine. But I did get the Ingalls Stiffy installed with the stock passenger side engine mount. The urethane mount vibrates so bad it drives me mad. Has any one ever run a stiffy with the stock mount? Seems to work pretty good. So far..

Well of course , nothing can go according to plan. When I had the head ported and the bigger valves installed, the cams were supposed to be clearanced as well. As I was checking to make sure, they are way off. So now I am redoing them . So there is 1 delay. Hope fully the tappets out of my old engine will work. I mean they weren't even close. Gonna have to call the engine shop, and see WTF.

Yeah, I followed the whole thread .Nice work. How`s she running ?.
Yup, I would think it will do 400 hp and 350 - 375 tq pretty easy. Gonna get it up and running with the turbo set up I have now, and max it out . And then install a new turbo and maybe return fuel system. But I am sure 300 - 325 on a daily driver will be more than enough. But i keep saying that, dont I...
