Default Bonding time

I picked up my motor on Friday & I thought I would post some pictures of my car waiting in the shop. Figured the two motors and the car need some time to bond before the tools come out.





Front shot of my complete L32




I like this one




Thatí* my Bosses Porsche in the background it keeps blowing some valve in the air box That car only has like 20k on it but it'* a over priced Voltswagon if you ask me

The plan almost since the beginning was to buildup up a complete L32. I think you're thinking of K-OtiK'* new motor where he is using a L32 Long block and his Gen3 SC & LIM.

I will be taking tons of pictures once I start wrenching.

Funny you mention that Adam, It was the middle of the day but the lights were off and garage doors closed. I was in the CNC shop by myself this weekend doing some work and thought I'd take a break. So I went to front building to visit my baby and snap a few quickies.
Thanks for the compliments!

Yeah, I can only do simple 2 & 3 axis programming; would like to learn more. I mainly setup the machines up for our various jobs and manage the shop. My boss & our dedicated programmer take care of most of our programming including our heavy 4 & 5 axis jobs. It'* a good field right now, we have more work then we can currently handle.
