Thanks for updating the original post, it's so much easier to read when it's all in one place. This thread is what brought me to this forum.

Looked at them and decided that I can't make a mold without cutting them, so I'm just going to order a set.

Updated the first post with pictures of the engine complete ready for install. Ran into some fitment issues with the Xcessive LIM, will update the post with what was required to make it fit running stock twins a little later tonight.

A little slow but the first post is now updated with what is required to use the Xcessive LIM with 99 or OEM twins.

Update your signature, something is gone from that list and something else is missing.

This may be an obnoxious question but were you shooting to be able to run this car for this season? When do things start where you are? We started at the end of last month.

First National event I'm scheduled to run is mid May. Our local clubs first event was March 30th, with the second event April 20th. May make that race.

I know you won't let me drive it, except on the dyno, maybe, but I want a ride

I bet we can have it running by next weekend for sure. With or without Brian. Btw, please don't drop the motor on my hand this time.
