Default SLO Build Thread

Driving somewhere, I heard a bad lifter. That was a half a year ago, but I used some Lucas oil stabilizer and had it go away. It'* back almost exactly 3000 miles later, really 29XX, so I'm going to do one more oil change with a quart of Lucas and drive like that to a nice & warm location.

Not only will I be doing lifters, but also I'll put on ported heads, a custom cam made specifically for the heads' flowbench results, and a Gen V M90.

I don't have my camera with me, but I'm going to take macro shots of the head ports. After classes end for the day, I'm heading over to a shop to do finishing touches to them before they are taken apart and flowbenched.

This should nicely complement my insane Triple Edge Performance trans that only has only 2,000 miles on it!

I'm really excited! It already pulls pretty hard for what'* been done with it. I don't even have traction in 2nd (when on ice).
