Re-measured with a stock tire off the car. Slicks are actually 25.75, not what MT said they'd be on 6" wide rims. Stock tires are 26.25, not what all the charts say.

New ratio is actually 3.03.


Back on the topic of Performance questions about the Zilla, you guys know I crapped a lifter or two. Shiny new lifters add power, right?

I'll be gaining about 5hp of lost power with a new timing chain and damper, too.

What about that "heat exchanger" you were planning on? Is that still in the works?

I did that 3 years ago. It exchanges heat from the seat to my arse. It'* nice and toasty in the winter!

But I don't drive that car in the winter. :(

That'* what you were asking about, right?

Prompted by much prodding, I thought I'd release another little teaser. Most of you are familiar with yesterday'* shenanigans involving new motor oil and a cat:

Pat, your pestering has paid off. The following picture is a sneak peek at my oil-soaking parts for part of the Zilla work this winter:
