Met w/ John P (Bravo) shop this weekend again here at LOTO, he is putting the package together for us to cross everything over. I have a PM into him to explain and answer all your questions. I am not totally sure all the exact weights he is using yet. I have triple 496 HO's and XR drives. We expect to have the conversion before Memorial Day (I am going to be on the road untill then).

Another Baja owner here that has the same 496's crossed the engine oil this weekend and stated as soon as it started up, the engine actually sounded different (quieter) he wanted to work the oil in first before he started hot rodding it, so I look forward to hearing from him next weekend after he runs it a bit more.

So far everything I have read and been able to confirm looks really good.

As far as the Amsoil, there is a difference, I'll let him explain that as well.

Lee Iacoca said when he was 14 and had a paper route he figured he needed about 15% more income and he would be happy. 40 years later when he was the highest paid executive in the country he said he needed just 15% more income and he would be happy.

We're never happy.
