Engine Project Update
Pete D Offline
My new engine is done and ready to go in the car. Just got a couple days work to do on the engine bay and it should be ready to drop in.
I'm getting real excited about it. Especially after hearing from Dan earlier that he got the last bugs out of his and how well his is running. Dan's going to post some pics of the engine on his site and provide a link. I just hope to get it all finished for Carlisle. I owe a big thanks to Dan for the moral support as well as the practical advise. There have been times when I wanted to name this the Murphey engine project, if it could it did and even when it couldn't it did anyhow!!!

88 TC X 2, 86 SVO, Main TC with K&N, 3"DP to 2.5"duals through Dynamax, Ric valve at 17+ and disconnected KS.
Elite Bodega 16" chrome wheels. Autometer pod w/ A/F and Vac/boost gauges. New engine shortly, ported head and
manifolds, polished and cc'd chambers, RR, Crowler, ARP head studs, Walbro 190 pump and T-3 for starters. KB subs
and jack rails

Well keep wrenching Pete...!
Good see things coming together...
Seems I always put myself on the other end of the country from my automotive interests.
When I lived in NC.. the National Miata meet was in Texas. I move to Arizona and the next meet is in Florida.
Now I'm REALLY getting in to the Tbirds, well.. Carlisle is a LONG way away.
