I'm shocked also. I can't imagine anyone creating all those aluminum shavings IN the engine.

Did you get your tranny rebuilt with a shift kit? If not, only plan for the trans to last about 2 months. It will not be able to handle the excess power. Just a tip.

Wow. I would love to see a write up on all the things you've done. Just a load of comprehensive info. I'm extremely interested to know exactly what you've done! And also, what kinda power are you seeing from it? Maybe 1/4 numbers? 0-60?

Little unorthodox on the P&P, but oh well.
