Default New Motors

Well they are coming along very nice.

I was down at Mark's shop yesterday morning to drop off some accessories and pick up the 500's and bring them back home and I took the following pictures of the long blocks and the Whipples.

They should be complete and ready for the dyno in about three weeks if all goes well.

I'll try and follow you around in the no wake zones as that is the only place I will be able to keep up! Nice looking motors.

We have been out three times this year already.

Brian,

My original notes some the ARP 135-3712 High Performance series.

I'll confirm that for you.

I won't be running too hard on Norman. Got to make them last!

Look forward to seeing you out there.

I'm jealous as this is the first time in eight years we have not already been boating by now.

Where do you like to hang out at?
