This is going to be my second build thread. My first build thread was on mightyd5o, and a picture thread was made in rememberance on the old mightyram50.
I had my head at the shop for the past month and was finished with the machine work shortly after I gave them the head. All I was waiting on was the arp exhaust manifold studs that have yet to come in still. The head was reconditioned and resurfaced. Webcams 546/547 grind are coming off after I send the oem cams and cam gears ack to the machine shop to have the surface rust taken care of.
The block was special ordered from maperformance or mordern automotive performance as a stage one 6 bolt eclipse shortbloc. Mahle pistons 9.0:1 compression with eagle rods, Balance shaft eliminated with a brand new oem oil pump and front case.
Total spent so far, 3150 for the short block, 680 for the headwork without the arp studs, maybe 150 in gaskets.
