His wife(assumption) is posting in the TCCOA FB with pictures. I can drag them here if there's an issue uploading them.

Looks like a nice 4V build to me!

Thank you guys. Planning on it being more than eye candy, but we'll see. Won't be racing it as much probably but it'll be out there on the prowl.

Looks great Steve! Love the green engine trim. You'll have to replace those skinnies they've probably got dry rot by now. :LOL:

What color green is that?
Not sure of the color. Picked it out of a sample color book a while back. Chris may know. I'll try to find out for you.

Don't know for sure. Purchased it that way!

I think the green was prismatic powders ultra illusion green and the silver bits were alien silver.

Love it!

Making it look easy being green!

Thanks Big Scott. We couldn't find anything to actually match the paint so we chose that color. Chris did an excellent job on the powder coating. I really like it. It'll pop when you open the hood.

So, soon Stage 1 will be in and completed within the next couple of weeks! Then its on with the bucket list, tuning, etc.

Is this a stock bore block?
I remember seeing a lot of people talking bout big bore 4.6’s with ported heads making almost 100hp more than the regular bore.

you ever came across this? I wonder that’s the cost of such a thing. I’d say the big bores REALLY let the 4v breath
