    I wanted to see if the intake manifold was the reason why I didn't gain anymore up top but with the new cams it will be impossible to compare. At least I can post results when the time comes because no one has any comparisons that I could find for the time being.

    That's good to hear I don't think much of it just because I haven't ran any fast times like its capable yet. I just cant afford to have anymore catastrophic failures.

    I can't believe your putting Wiseco's back in. It wasn't the wrist pin that failed, it was wiseco's junk ass piston that failed. For others playing along, since the begining 1400HD's came with a 0.225" wall 9310 wrist pin.

    This has been a long 9 months since the last block had a detrimental failure. I bought a used shortblock but that ended up being junk after I tore it down with very little passes on it due to poor quality control. So I took another step back and just went with top of the line work done right by none other than Curt Brown once again. This assembly is a Turbo Tuff and Shearer Spec Wiseco custom pistons which are vastly different than the standard off the shelf wiseco extreme duties. I will post pictures of the actual short block later but damn does it feel good to finally have this knowing I don't have to second guess the machine work performed. 52602800_10219258832407723_4058344589747027968_o.jpg

    Finally had some time to pull the block from packaging and slap it on the engine stand. I am shooting to have this assembled by Friday. I got my hands on a brand new OEM 6 bolt oil pickup which are discontinued. My friend said come check this out and bam manual rack that I've been talking about for over 2 years. Ya he got my ass when I was vulnerable LOL but it has good bushings and the correct brackets. 20190306_190644.jpg 20190306_190644.jpg 20190306_190629.jpg 20190306_212846.jpg 20190306_212903.jpg

    I also took a shot of the shortblock next to the ETS 6" intercooler this thing is huge. I'm not gonna lie I definitely overdid it for sure. 53709948_10219344573831205_1398308658562990080_o.jpg

    I'm glad you're enjoying the build thread updates. I will be sticking with the hx40 for now. I had a ton of time to think about this build where it started and where I am right now. I'm not sure how the new intake manifold and cams are going to work out. I contemplated just making it a track car but that takes away the fun of it for me. I got caught up in just chasing a record. In all honesty power wise I maxed last year's setup but I did not maximise the potential that setup had as far as short track which would have no doubt got me where I wanted to be.

    Last month I was about to sell everything I had DSM wise and just throw the towel in completely. The community has changed, less and less people are out to help each other and just flap there gums from some crap they find on Facebook. This is when I told myself you know I just need to have fun again like 2017 . I had alot of fun because I kept my setup fairly basic and enjoyed the car. I'll probably regret the s3's on the street but I'll just have to find out the hard way.

    I like it for the weight reduction and gives a little more room in the rear.

    Finally got a few hours to work on the motor. About 95% assembled and it will be ready to drop in! 20190310_111451.jpg 20190310_195051.jpg 20190310_195058.jpg 20190310_195119.jpg

    IMG_0520.jpg I didn't care for the small casting flaws in the runners so I took some time to clean them up. Then I gasket matched the port to match the head port work. Neccessary no but I will squeeze every single bit of efficiency I can out of this. 20190313_174705.jpg 20190313_174649.jpg

    20190313_202659.jpg 20190313_202706.jpg After the port work I decided it was time to drop the longblock in. Now this is such a relief FINALLY! I call this March madness. Don't mind the earnest of wires I plan on addressing that later.
