Marty... I'll skip the prayer.

Schedule a couple days in Plain City Ohio at Intense. It starts with Todd, then you move on to meeting the guys, Tim gets his hands on your car (don't tell him it'* the same body style as mine until he gets the keys ) and while waiting you are surely going to meet Scott.

Good, good!!! Thanks.
Today is a tractionless day. Snowing, the ground is covered for the first time in almost 5 weeks. Perfect timing if you asked me.
Oh, well, I guess I will be yanking the 3.5" FWI right away and putting the 3" CAI back in. :( Gonna need an alignment too from having the cradle dropped when the motor/trans were swapped.

Thanks for the extra prayer.
I'll have to snap some pics as I install the AC bypass pulley this weekend. Wait until then.

Was talking to 96BonnevilleL67, after Basic Machining class tonight while I was still in Alexandria, having a litte fun with the boost. Did a quick (yes, quick, but not 8-Ball fast) 20-70 run so Dan could hear it, and had to slow for a red light coming up. Stopped at the light, gave it 1/2 throttle to get to the next intersection, where I expected to turn left onto I-94 to head back to Sauk Centre. But when I came to a stop for the light at the I-94 entrance, I noticed the engine kind of stumbled, and I noticed, at the same time, in my rear view mirror that smoke was starting to billow out. So I crossed the 2 lanes and the intersection to the gas station there. As I coasted into the parking lot of the gas station the car completely stalled out.
I ended up being stuck there with a disabled car, no light to look under the hood (clerk at gas station told me to buy a flashlight (so I told him I'd rather pay my brother to come from Sauk Centre with his truck and the tow dolley he rented today (lucky for me).
So called my brother, and made a reminder on my phone for me to put a flashlight in the car tomorrow.
When my brother got there I used his flashlight to find the coolant was leaking from between the SC and the TB spacer.

So tomorrow morning I am going to drain the oil, pull the plugs, remove the TB spacer, clean the plugs and regap them to .053 (from the stock .060 on the original 38k old Iridiums), crank the engine over to get rid of Prestone in the cylinders.

After that I'll be making a little tribute video to the TB spacer, utilizing a good dose of gasoline and a flame.

TB spacer doesn't seem to be a problem. This is the ??? second TB gasket issue you've had with an SC. Were both gaskets (one on eash side of spacer) new?

Yup, both were new Fel-pro'* when I assembled the top end. I've heard of other people having the same problem with them. Also, I made sure the gasket surfaces on the TB, TB spacer, and SC were perfectly clean.
The car had been driven about 100 miles, and the engine had run/idled for almost 2 hrs prior to me driving it down the road.
