very good bought two 3.0 for parts .. 100mm liners machined and block machining etc done .. 100mm pistons bought .. just trying to find a 3.2 crank for less than 900.00 then i can decided what length cosworth steel rods i need to order and the bottom ends done..

located a set of big race valves at good money so lots of flow bench time due soon..

thinking of building my own flow bench over the winter and doing my own heads

well started with the stereo install then rebuilt clutch gearbox lsd. then entire front and rear suspension including antiroll bars and coilovers.. done spacers wheels etc.
then rebuilt the calipers had 330mm fitted already so front and rear rebuild..
built some cf2 cross cf3 fronts pipes and full wizard system though looking for some sport cats.. 200 cell items

working on front and rear lower suspension braces as we speak.. so hopefully engine is the last item on the build... lol

unless i get bored and supercharge it....
