I'll do that after I install the MSD coil and Massive wires that are supposed to be delivered today... I have a feeling my rings (or valve guides) might be leaky, my car's been using oil lately... Maybe I can find a low-mileage SVT engine to swap...

I really doubt its the rings, probaly just the top end needs to be rebuilt. You and I can pull the head in a day and take it to a shop to have it rebuilt.

Leaky valve guide??? Or, could it be a bad head gasket? If I knew it was a bad head, I'd look into a performance head to bolt on...

CFM has some high-performance shortblocks for $1999 right now...

I think it's me, NorCal and Mr. Johnson... None of us will place, there's already 3 "ringers" competing!!! We're just battling to stay out of last place!

I'll win the competition for most oil consumption

Is Lathrop or Tracy convenient to all??? I'm good w/ either? It's gonna be an early morning!

I wonder if there's a car wash close to the show so we can knock off the bugs we pick up along the way!?!?
