That looks great Brian. I didn't know you were so involved in engine building. I'll have to see your shop sometime. See you at Leopa, Ian

LMAO, best rethink the engine mount location shown in the picture he posted on donzi.net

I am sorry I thought you meant another customer name todd that I am doing a set of Ilmor V-10's for. The pic of the mount he posted is just the starting stage, I have already cut them down to inside the stringer mounts with just 1 tab coming over the top to unload the weight from the side bolt load. I was tiging his side mounts earlier in the week when my welder decided to blow a coolant hose all over me while welding. Waiting on new hose assembly from Miller and it was a no show yesterday hope it gets here Monday so i can continue.

Thanks Ian, Engines have been my life for 31 years now. Are you and Donna making the fall run ? I will be there with my friend Ernie.

Yes, that's one of our favorite runs. The Detroit River is very scenic at 10:00 in the morning. Looking forward to seeing you guys, Ian

Hey Todd I tried to call you after a run to see if you could hear it but no answer on your cell... guess I should of shut it down so your could hear it ringing. But really have you heard anything ? The Doc next door did not know what I was talking about when I asked him if he had any issues with the noise... he just kept saying " WHAT" so I figured he was good with it. If he ends up having a problem with the noise I will put tips on the exhaust and point them southeast ( thats TheGladiator's house).
