    It's 98% done. Just a couple more things to bolt on and it's ready for the dyno. Maybe I'll get a dyno sheet for a Christmas present. Thanks for asking.

    Looking good Doug!! It will be nice to be able to just race and not worry about "when it's going to happen"!

    Looks like I will be joining the "Tomahawk Club" in the next few years. Looking forward to a little feeling of confidence myself while racing!

    Keep up the good work!

    There's no need. I tried that same test ten years ago on the 528" that Scotty built me. Vacuum pump made about 25hp.

    Those are impressive numbers, with such a "low" lift cam

    Well, the day has finally arrived! Scotty got it running last night and it made 850 Hp right off the bat. He said we should be able to tune it to about 880. The important part for me is the fact that he loved verything about this whole deal, from the block to the rockers, to the cam, the pan...everything. He said it didn't fart, burp, hiccup, or leak a drop of anything. He also said it sounds NASTY!! He especially loved the block's ability to externally restrict the oil up to the valvetrain. He's hard to please, so if loves all of it, I know I will as well.
