    What are your detailed plans for the bottom end? Stock fasteners? Studs? Rod bolts?

    King bi-metal bearings (have had great results with these in the past) They are very forgiving bearings

    ARP main bolts
    ARP rod bolts
    ARP head bolts

    stock rods
    stock crank

    Probe forged pistons

    Saleen warrantied the s351r with the stock internals minus the pistons, they used forged wiseco. Unfortunately their tune was not very good and resulted in some failures.

    Also will be using stock bearing clearances and ring gap will be wider. I am going to use stock ring size 5/64

    Well I haven't worked on the car much the last couple of weeks besides tedious rewiring of gauges and basic wiring. I needed some motivation so i took a trip to the machine shop Monday. The engine was out of the vat and sitting in the back of the shop and it looks great. I'm not sure what kind of enamel they use on marine blocks but it is durable.

    Well after some needed motivation it was back to the garage. Last week i cleaned out the shop and organized car parts. Two things were obvious, the heads and supercharger looked like junkyard candidates and the valve covers, I almost threw away. So first the supercharger.
