Default Build up thoughts..and meanings

Andrew aka Harofreak pulled his car off the road... ???? two beater cars ago.
He'* hoping to start it soon. (Boosty parts express is shipping parts today)

Bill aka WillWren pulled his car off the road in Nov???? One transmission and beater car later..he'* started and running again.

Bill aka Boost aka me pulled his car into the garage at the end of Mar. Two engines and one transmission later... I was still back on the road for a limited time (between engines and transmission) before either one of them.

What does all this mean?

I swapped an engine in with roller rockers and PEMs. The only reused parts are the timng cover, SC, and TB basicly. And the SC and TB are "bigger and better" than original. And, the new engine was bored out a little in the reman. That'* gotta count for something.
