    Finally after 3 years I'm hitting my goals.

    Hopefully anyway.

    Heads and cam arrived today. TMS 235cc CNC ported 243 heads, che trunions, cam (222/226 .600/.600 117 LSA +4) and some other goodies.

    Final form will be heads, cam, ported fast 92, long tubes, kooks cats and borla catback.

    I'll update after I get some miles on the base tune and hit the rollers again.

    I'm looking forward to seeing your results.

    I talked to Tony Mamo on Sunday about porting my FAST 90. He was telling me I should just step up to a ported 102 instead. I might do it. I certainly don't need to, but it's only money, right?

    In my opinion it's not worth it for the difference in gains between the 92 and the 102.

    I'm less sure of the difference between a 90 that's been ported and a 102. I jumped on my ported 92 when it came up for sale, not disappointed at all.

    It falls in line with the heads/cam combo I choose.

    Curious to see what numbers you make. Trying to stay NA but the lure of compressed air is strong.

    If this flops, I'm building a 6.0l destroker as a father son project.

    Happy to report after some puckerd factor, everything looks serviceable.

    Needle bearings on the #6&8 cylinder, intake side, lifter rollers came out somehow.

    Figured it out with a magnet on the FOD on the pickup tube. Being magnetic means it's not main bearings. All needle bearings on rockers accounted for.

    Hit the rollers with a bright light and moved each one. 2 had gaps where the rest did not, consistent with a needle bearing not being present in those locations.

    Everything is moving full steam ahead.

    All cleaned up and ready to reassemble.

    Hard to believe that is a 155,000 mile motor!

    Hopefully tomorrow is the day I can take her home.

    Oil cooler fab in progress.

    Package gets reinstalled in a bit, then exhaust and everything should be finished up Saturday morning.

    I'm getting excited now that the hard stuff is done.

    It's alive.

    Tomorrow I'm bleeding the clutch and brakes and I'll be data logging my butt off.

    Got it home, heading to get a steering alignment tomorrow afternoon and maybe investigate new tires.

    The CS red bushings are awesome. My black ones had worn out, and they warrantied them, so I went red.

    If you're having a debate between daily and red, go red for control arms and black everything else except for the trailing arm bushings and shock mounts. Do those in red.

    It seems to be a perfect balance between handling and comfort. If any more wear out, I'll replace them all with red.

    Slapped some new tires on the car, Roadstone N'fera SU1.

    So far they are great tires and extremely silent compared to the perelli and MPSS I ran previously.

    Perfect daily driver tire that can get ignorant. So far I am planning on buying another set when I swap wheels.

    The advantage of them for my car is that the 275/35R19 is a hair taller, and a hair skinnier than the MPSS that came off the car.

    This means the car sits a hair higher and doesn't rub the fender walls. The MPSS new, were ever so slightly shorter and ever so slightly wider and that difference has saved my exhaust from scrapping.
