Jim, what block is that a gen 3 l33? I see it has the knock sensor location in the valley so I was curious if the bores are siamese or not. Looks like you used the texas speed 3.820" boost pistons with k1 rods and 3.622 k1 crank? That should be a stout piece, did you pin the mains or anything?

it is a gen III Block. Spot on with the pistons and rotating assembly. (nice pistons if I may say so myself I really like the design)

no pinned mains. Just arp studs.

It's a huge pain in the butt and is actually slowing everything down.

It's an LM4 block basically the same as an L33 block.

I believe it! I’ve been putting off taking my setup apart to clean everything one last time before the first start but I keep putting it off.

Been a while since I had time to work on the car. All my spare time has been spent with my new CNC plasma table.
I did finally manage to fab up the downpipes. Still need to weld them up. Ran out of Argon on the final tack weld. I did take the time to 3d print some pipe fab tools similar to the ice engine works kits. That actually helped a bunch.
