    Since we couldn’t make Kevin and Katie’s event this weekend, we decided to take two days off and get some work done on my car.

    Pulling her out of hibernation felt really nice. I’ve been dying to get some progress made and this weekend is it!

    Bowl and blended the cylinder head. Got the water pump on, sealed up the bottom end, and started putting some timing components on.

    Not super exciting stuff but it gives us a good start for tomorrow! We have big goals that we hope to achieve by tomorrow night and I can’t wait to share them (once attempted/accomplished).

    I’m only posting updates on Vanna here because I love the forums and want to keep everything in one space

    As always, things don’t always go according to plan.

    We were certain we had good valves but after spending an obscene amount of time searching- nope, we don’t.

    Fortunately, there was still enough to get done.

    We finished cleaning out the head and now it’s all good, ready to go.

    Got the trans pulled out (literally) and clutch ready.

    Got ready to put the engine in the bay and off of the god awful engine stand we have (we have so many yet constantly use this garbage one that does not do what you need it to). But then another snag: The mounts are in storage so we had to run into town and to the far side of it just to get them.

    Nothing is ever easy nor does it go how you want it to.
    Not ever, LOL

    Finally, after 7 hours, we got ‘er in! Since we don’t have the right (or any) valves, we just put the head and valve cover on for protection.

    E0DE6F30-D8BD-438D-B371-8932D50C1750.jpeg

    Putting the clutch and trans in was pretty easy between the two of us. Holding it up with my legs while matt got the bolts in was wild but thank goodness for lifting, no? ;)

    Ended the day with getting the t-case on (temporary, we still have more to do, of course) and pushing her back into her home :)

    Looking forward to the next time we can take some time and get even further

    It sorta bothers me too but for how little I’ll probably pop my hood, I’ll let my time slips do the talking ;)

    Things are comin’ in to get Vanna where she needs to be!

    Haltech Elite 2500 + Custom Plug-n-Play Harness from Performance Partout
    (https://performanceecu.com/)

    Ferrea Competition Plus Exhaust and Intake Valves from ExtremePSI

    We are hoping to take a day off (gonna be weird.. what’s a “day off,” LOL) in the next couple of weeks to get some more done now that the valves are ordered and here!

    Getting really excited for 2021 and being able to get back to the track/streets. Gonna be a fun year of enjoying the shit out of my dream talon! Added a photo of where we left off back in September (holy moly, that’s the last time we took time off!)

    Got a tiny bit done today.
    Valves in, head on, cams and cam gears in and on, so that’s nice.
    It’s funny how you go into the day thinking you’ll get much further than you do and then BAM you’re reminded that if something can go wrong, it does

    I know it's bone-chilling cold where you guys are but hopefully you're doing okay and have some updates for us on Vanna. :) Stay safe out there!

    Yeah, I realized that right after I posted. A bit insensitive of me. I just noticed some activity by them in my activity feed here on the forum and wanted to see how things were going.
