Well the block is at the machine shop getting bored to match the new pistons, getting magnafluxed, new cam bearings/cap and the crank is getting checked out. I picked me up a windstar lower from the later models and am going to use that with deleted IRMC's and EGR. So for the next week or 2 I am sitting on a pile of gaskets waiting for it to get back to start the build.

PS: I also upped the boost to 13psi in the wastegate. :)


I have been working on my windstar lower and along with cleaning and removing the irmc's I started the removal of the upper egr valley.

sct sucks for tuning. It will do the same as all others but is very inconvienant when you have to shut the car down to reflash the pcm. I'm thinking about selling my proracer and go be.

That looks crazy and would be very very cool. I really like the idea of only having six runners for splitport heads.

On edit. Would it be better to have a common plenum rather than a wrap around to individual runners. I figure the less bends the better for airflow.

The 2 layer is for equalized pressures and also a "hiding" place for the vacuum lines.


Also the six runners are for matching my lower but I can always adapt for a normal mustang lower.

very cool, i too would make it with that plenum feeding all 6 cylinders in parallel rather than in series like you have.

engine block is back from the shop and will be starting assembly tomorrow. For now most of the short block will sit until I have cash.

well I seem to keep having issues, first it was my 1st compression rings on the ross pistons were special so had to order them. Now it seems they are special again, went to install and the connecting rods bearings are a bit off but the caps are fine... x_X
