    Engine Build......Anticipation and more parts needed

    So, David Dalke was going to be nice and build an engine for me, but it so happens all sorts of parts became available and he has offered to assemble them for me and check everything out. For a car I was ready to just park and walk away from for another several years things are coming around nicely and way more quickly then first believed.

    Harvest is going on, but with still having over 100,000 acres to go there won't be anytime for taking the current engine apart and getting ready for the new one.

    What is being assembled:

    (SP on names)

    Kevin Leitman's 10.07 short block

    Ken Wagner's pre turbo(s) cam

    David Clark's Steigemier Heads that just make 420hp on his AR

    With the cam David is going to put 1.6 adjustable rockers on it. Sticking with the MPX II SC since the car is an SC.

    Needed Parts: Radiator, ported exhaust manifolds and 2.5" down tubes.

    The extremely limited budget that I had has been exhausted, so there are several parts that have come up that would be nice additions, but sticking to the plan. (Thank you Sandy (my wife)).

    If anyone has any of the above listed parts let me know. There isn't any free cash at the moment, but payments or patience and the $ will be available by the end of the year. Currently working 7 days a week, so there isn't any free time to do anything. Rainy days allow for some searching.

    What I will have for sale:

    Heads that have 3 angle valve job done on them, but all stock rockers and valves and springs. Car made 325hp at the rear wheels with an MPII SC
    ARP head studs,
    80MM C&L Maf set up for 60lb injectors.
    Ken Wagner Double IC

    The one thing I have decided on yet is if I want to install the aluminum flywheel or stick with the stock. Pros and Cons to both, but there is a few months to decide.

    Anyhow, that's the current fun with my SC. Anyone else doing winter projects a few months early?

    Why the 1.6 rockers? you give up all the wonderful lift. Ported manifolds are easy. If your in town I can port a stock set quickly and save you a buck or two

    Ken, that's a great ? So I went back and looked at why that was decided upon. That was when I was going to go with what Dave already had build at the time and that engine didn't have valve relief in the Pistons. The lift had to be limited to .560. Now that I am going with different Pistons 1.73 should be do able. Going to have to touch base with Dave again. The heads shipped to him today, so he should have everything by the end of the week to look at it all.

    The exhaust manifolds are in Silver City if Melon can't find his set I will be in touch to get what I have ported. Either way, should get the set I have ported.

    the heads can be ready pretty quick. Just haven't had a reason to take it apart and with every other Saturday off I can drive over and get them off.

    Until I get the valve covers off and them pulled I would say about $200.00 plus shipping. They never missed a tick for me. Just couldn't turn down the other heads with the rebuild going on.

    ARP studs that are holding them on now would be $50.00 plus shipping. If they go with the heads it will be combined shipping.

    Won't be selling anything until it is torn down though and that will probably be Feb to Mar time frame.

    I can't remember what all was done to them. Do some digging and see what I can find.

    Adam,

    You can have the studs. Haven't heard from Dave in awhile with SEMA and the holidays so I don't know where in the process my new engine is. Too cold to tear the old one out at this time, but everything should be done by March.
