    Hey Rob,

    NICE engine!! Did they stop the dyno pull at 6600 rpms? Did the HP begin to go down?

    They stopped at 6500. The power was still climbing but the oil was hot because they were on the 7th pull. Also the air temp was 90 degree with high humidity. The power could be closer to 780 @ 7200.

    Rob, The new car is at the chassis shop being upgraded to 25.1E specs. We also are moving some stuff around so I can be comfortable in the car. With the way the progress has gone so far I'd say we should be ready for shake downs 1st of September.

    Looks Awesome! Are you building a TA Alum. 600" motor for the new car? We are working on 500 CFM heads for them (very close now, hope to see them Thursday) and beyond from billet heads. Keep up the great work and give my Kudos to Bobb, great guy!

    George,
    I honestly couldn't say what the valve covers cost. I didn't have a need to keep track of the time it took to make them.
    I can say that those are machined from a solid block of material.
