we got some misc parts in incl, cup holders, and hydraulics to try and make the hatch work with the very minimal space that will be left....stainless sent us some 5in pipes to use to dyno one of the motors.....daaang a 5 in pipe looks larger than ud think were tryin to get ahold of monstaa to make panels for the left side since we couldny find a new map cover, and bill casson (sign4boat) to make a 4u to go after 2hot on the sides. ive been tryin to go down to see the mills, but too freakin busy lately...since we got the test pipes in we should be goin down soon to get pics of mills and drives. this is taking waaaay to dam long.....

aeighty.. well we just got in the stainless marine pipes yesterday for the rear, and the tig welded center pipes for the center today to make sure the dimensions all work.. we have been very happy with stainless marine, and after picking to use em for exhaust after talkin wit brownie at the miami show, have to say this is the only part of the resto that has gone faster and smoother than expected, and recommend them to anyone lookin fer exhaust. plus, they sure look shiny were decided if we can to send an engine to dean gellner to dyno, tune etc. and will be setting all the engines in, and putting the drives actualy on this week hopefully, so we can see if exhaust fits, and find out where we can squeeze our two new hatch hydraulics in...so thats fer the update.... i reeealy need a digital camera so i can take some frigin pics

I think your engine builders Dyno is still sitting in his old building here, in Cin....Or the guys that did the machine work up here could probanly get you hooked up on a dyno. Not that Dean is not a GREAT choice but..Would he even Dyno somebody elses engines ?
