    :eek2: Now that is eye candy! Can't wait to see more progress pic's. I guess you won't have to worry about coolant leaks with that block:grin: 100lbs of the nose of the car, that will be fun to find the sweet spot. Thank you for posting pics:TU: Chris

    Rod or Danie,

    Sorry if you said already, but what crank are you using for this build and what does it weigh?

    Nice build BTW. :beers2:

    Oops, sorry, I see its a Crower. Did you weigh the crank?

    No it's not Moldex, but I would recommend one over this one. This new one is a Crower and weights 10 lbs less, total weight 82 lbs. My other one is a Moldex and it required less work to balance it. The counter weight on this one is to small so it took a lot of weight to balance it.

    This motor will make as much power as the heads will allow. I'm thinking about 1600-1700 hp. I could make 2000-2500 if I had a big set of heads.

    I can't do anything with them sitting on your shelf. They are not helping the performance of that shelf one bit. We need a smiley dropping a ball. :laugh:

    The motor should be running this Sunday (saying everything goes smooth) even with those tiny itty bitty heads. My blower might just pop them right off.
