As most of you guys know, my block is done...D*U*N. I am having a forged shortblock being made for me as I type this. I will be starting removal of my current engine next weekend (April 30th) and will be getting the car prepped for the new powerplant...including guages, vortech oil lines, etc. Any help from the NC guys would be greatly appreciated. I plan on taking my time in this since a fellow NC member is loaning me a car (thanx Aaron). Plan on dropping in the new long block on or around the 6th or so of may. I can't pay ya (sorry), but I can provide food and a place to sleep...Thanx in advance for those who will help me.

Dude, I had planned on trying to make it. For entertainment at the least, but my unit is in charge of the Air show that weekend. Let me know how it goes.
