As much as I would like to have some 1100's or 1350's.
For now it will just have my 565 n/a. EFI's.

Awesome project. Can't wait to see how it turns out.

When I had a set a Ilmors rigged in my 38 Fever I got to spend a weekend with Ben Robertson who was doing consulting work for Ilmor at the time. Ben told me that the 42 PR was designed as a five -seater from its inception. When he and the crew at Fountain were doing the final mock-up on the cockpit everyone was very pleased with the way it laid out with the five seats. Then Reggie walked in and took a quick look at the mock-up, shook his head and barked out, "Make it a four seater!" and walked out. Much as they tried to convince him otherwise Reggie had made up his mind.

Since you have it totally apart, apparently there is room for five seats in the 42 PR if you are so inclined

I agree with Reggie, it think the 4 seat layout is badazz.
