Great thread - any updates, or are you too busy out driving it??

Hi Jiffy, Nah ! not out driving it just yet,    had it on the Dyno to finish tune the engine,  didn't go as planned, done a couple of runs then had a seized Hydraulic lifter  ( new)...so pulled the injection off, replaced the lifter then back on Dyno,  couple more runs  then blew a head gasket,  So I decided to pull the motor out do a complete strip down check everything and rebuild it again,   The first couple of pulls show about 700 ft/lbs of torque,  so she has plenty of potential ..

Far out - it wasn't tied down well on the dyno, was it???

Sorry to hear about the lifter/head gasket issue!
