      LMK where and when you are dynoing i can come down.. Remeber that tune i sent you you will need less timing across the curve due to the higher comp ratio. i'd say about 3-4 degrees less to start with.

      Started assembling the block tonight. Got the new fans in and ran the wiring and fuel line for
      the surge tank. Planing on having it back in the car on Sunday.

      It was nice coming by and seeing it starting to come back together. I swear I see that thing in pieces more then together with all the upgrades you are constantly doing. Looking good.

      I still haven't gotten a ride in the turbo version yet so I might have to hit you up one of these days.

      Sh1t, my motor has less the 1k on it on a full rebuild and i just lifted the head off with to much boost and high comp. I still dont have a knock. I beat the crap out of it too..

      I feel for you man. I realy wanted you to have this thing done so we can race.
      Let me know if there is anything I can do.

      Rod and Main bearings wrong size... OEM the crank was turned .010 years ago and i wasn't told...
      New bearings going in tonight.. no damage it was still on the lift no load on it... pulled the oil pan
      and all looks good.
      Dodge a major bullit... Rookie Mistake I should have mic'd the crank.

      It lives!!!!!!! It's Alive HAAAA HAAAA HAAAAAAAAAAA!
      [Evil laugh]

      Up and running tonight. A new motor is a hot runner, I took it for a few miles up a few hills trying
      to keep the boost down but hit 20psi a few times.... let it sit and idle when i got back to the shop
      to see if it will maintain temps.... idled for 10 minutes and temp rose to overheat so i shut it down
      bled off the pressure in the coolent bottle and topped it off.. air in the system still. only water for now.
      I need a new hose that goes from the overfill bottle to the metal pipe that connects to the heater core.
      Anybody got one?
      as for the track this weekend I will be going to support my brother in law and his new scirocco but I have decidded to forgo this race due to not enough break in time. This has been a large investment and i won't risk wasting it just to make 1 race.
      In a couple of weeks it will be broke in and ready to run big boost.
      I will post new pics tomarrow.

      I got hung up on a single exhaust gasket tonight... so tomarrow i will get it home. I did install a new water hose and another trip around the block.... Found the exhaust leak was a gasket #3
      so i called it a night and stopped by my friends place and got a few pics of his 68 Chevelle I painted last summer. 9 second w/ 468 Big Block.

      Took the Corrado for a spin tonight... cooling is good, got the boost controller turned all the way out...15psi only all the wayto 7500rpm.. nice.. but the curse continues, Oil is blowing out the oil pan so tomarrow at noon i got to pull it down and use Grey RTV to seal it up.

      I finnaly got it finished but i would like to start with a public apoloigy to Jerry for ever doubting him. The oil pan didn't leak......Oil sending unit was leaking..
      so an easy fix then a romping test drive and the 5 year old alternator failed
      Thanks to JR he did a little midnight autosalvage and got me another ABA alternator.
      I let my brother in law Eric drive it, He was giggleing like a school girl on her first date.
      I had the boost controller turned all the way out so only 15 psi. he said damn this thing gets away from you fast... thats why i warned you about gripping the steering wheel firm before you let the dog off the chain.
      Here are a few pics of the finished motor.

      Corrado has been running great so i had a go at a Black Supra Turbo... the race was really good untill the Cheap ass Clutch Explodded when i shifted from 9k into 3rd gear.
      I new i should have gone to a tried and true Clutchnet clutch. I will be installing one this week.

      Cheap chianese knock off.

      I'll post pics of the carnage this week.

      That sucks ass. But I have been there before.

      I took the rabbit out today. I must say that with the lower timing the thing is making some Major power. Way more than i thought.

      I am going to try and get some more tuning done this week.

      No, I installed the new master and bled it to good pressure and the pedal feels right.
      master and slave working then i start the engine and the clutch pedal goes to the floor.
      We believe it is a broken Pressure plate and or Clutch disc... I'll post pics tomarrow.
      BTW thank Wayne for the hook up on the Master cyclender.

      Well i got the transaxle out tonight after work and here is the carnage....
      XTD clutch kits are ****. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY.
      Inferior metal caused this Pressure plate to break at only 300whp.
