Well the cars coming on been really busy with it

the conrods had to be taken to a engineering company to have a set of small end bearings made for it the crank shaft went there also to be polished

Ive also moddfied the new intake mani as the ports were not big enough for my liking!

the cylinder head is finshed also ready to go on, just need a few finial bits for the bottom end

also the bottom end has had a few trick bit done to the oil ways by myself just to make it that bit better

here are a few pics for ya
