    MAGNAFLUX CYLINDER BLOCK
    SQUARE & DECK CYLINDER BLOCK
    R PISTON/ROD

    Also sent the head out to R&L Racing to have my Crower valves, springs and retainers installed. New seats and guides were also installed. Also had the head decked, ported and polished and vacuum tested.

    Power Enterprise head gasket and ARP L19 head studs.

    Post #4, pic 10 from the top. Is just the picture angle or there's something wrong with the subframe? It almost look like the welding came apart if you compare it wit the other side on the very next picture.

    I am going to dream that garage and lift for the rest of my life!

    Congrats on the build!
