    Was Talking to Tim while ordering parts a few weeks back and asked the same question. As of that time they didnt have the blanks in but were expecting to have the orders complete by late spring / early summer. He said they sold 23 of the 25 allotted units for the sale. Thats pretty good for us and them.

    I contacted TA yesterday via email, very prompt response and Sherri said That The foundry is still working on the blocks and will be done in March. After that, they go to the machining process which takes about six weeks.

    So this works for me I am still looking at July. I have ordered my internals and awaiting the Bob weight to order the crankshaft.

    My next chunk will be the heads. Hopefully, the 54mm cores will be available by Christmas

    No problem, this would be a great deal for somebody who wants to go racing this summer this short block is complete minus a camshaft all machine work and balancing done. All parts are very high-quality.Tom

    Call me the noob, but is this the aluminum block I've been reading about? I'd love to build one for my riv, but the wife insists we buy stupid things like food, and shoes and stuff for the kid.
