You knew it was still in break in eh? Sounds like you've talked to my Dad somewhere? Yeah, he's decided to go easy on it for the first 1000 or so.

I can finally just about see my cars from under the pile of snow at the end of the driveway. There's a HUGE berm of snow plowed in front of them, which is probably a good thing or I'd consider getting one out to play with it.

Dang... still a good size pile of snow two foot deep and four wide in front of my cars! It was about six deep though, so it's going quick. We'll have to plow it all someplace else next year I think. Probably good thing though, my driveway is a long muddy mess still.

i know i could stomp some 4 cylinders, but some force fed v6s might be a challenge, especially with a one wheel wonder

Well after my car started hooking better a couple weeks ago its down . My Griffin radiator i installed last year decided to start leaking out of the upper tank. So now its getting sent back to be replaced, but it cost me $100 to ship it down You would think a $600 radiator would last longer than a year

Well the car is down again, after losing a head gasket last summer I decided to pull the engine to check everything over. It needs to be freshened up Looks like I am going to be somewhere north of $1000 to do a proper rebuild. The crappy chrome pan needs to go and I need to add a main stud girdle as I am already over what the block is rated to, oh yeah and a bigger cam. Tore it down yesterday.

Ryan,
Is that oil residue on the rod journals or are they discolored by heat? Good luck with the rebuild!
