Shawn and Ed made the drive up from VA Beach this morning to pick up the cruiser. Damon (MCLEOD) came by to lend moral support. Next time I see it it will have a 427 under the hood.

Thanks guys.





At least it was sunny..



On it's way to winter in Va Beach - again.

I would expect some where around 30 days. We have to get it apart and ship the heads off to the west coast (one week each way). Richard has some plans for them.

I just had a long talk with Richard at West Coast Cylinder Heads (proheads.com). He's been working the last few weeks on more port programming and chamber design. He says he's got the intakes up to 380CFM and that the numbers will be right in with the LS7 heads. He's also bumping the intake valve up to 2.200 inches - HUGE!!! He's really excited about being involved again with this ongoing project - and so am I.

Ed just emailed me the last pull on the 403. 516/471. Still 400RWT at 2k RPM. I'm sure he could tweak the tune for todays conditions and get it right back up to 521/480 it was last spring. The build has always been extremely consistent on two seperate DJ's that do read very close to each other.

Oh well, now that we have a baseline - Onwards and upwards!
