Down in San Diego at Frank Fahey's place. The block is ready -- epoxy sealed, the bores are perfect with less than .0001 taper on all six holes, and it is the original block :-) 96mm JE Forged 10.25:1 pistons. 92mm SCAT crank (from Dinan on the first go around). It'll be right at 4.0 litres.

The head is port-matched, cc'ed, and polished -- a thing of beauty to be sure. Valves are three-angled w/all new guides. Schrick intake cam and Dinan Exhaust sprocket. New timing chain and tensioners. And on and on.

Debating on going to a Brembo front brake package or staying with stock M5 stuff. It's a bit more money (what isn't in the go-fast world?) and it may well be wise to increase the whoa-power along with the increase in go-power this new motor will provide. It's definitely gonna get new stainless braided lines. I'll go over and check on the progress next week. After it's broke in some we'll put 'er on the dyno and see what she really puts out ;>)
