I got the distributer made, I am going to have to make a different one, this one is a little too tall, it is going to hit the hood, I want to keep the original hood and try and cram everything under it, all so got the block extensions done and installed, I tacked it all together to see how things are going to look, and all so to be able to mock it up in the car and start making headers, I want them to turn up and forward parallel to the valve covers and mount the turbos on the front of them, thanks for checkin it out!IMG_1138-vi.jpgIMG_1141-vi.jpgIMG_1136-vi.jpgIMG_1140-vi.jpgIMG_1143-vi.jpg

pictures don't do it justice either. I just saw it in person and

man-o-man what a cool piece it is; a little further along, so stand by to see it get even better.

I'm sure the next post will be of the lumpy cam and crankshaft he just machined freehand. The post after that will be of the spark plugs......

Seriously though, this is an impressive build. I can almost hear it run now.....
