    Paul, What brand pump & pickup is that?
    I see you decided to go w/ the aluminum flywheel, I think you'll be fine w/ that w/ the power level you'll see. I bet you have this thing about halfway installed already, huh? Good luck on the rest of the buildup, and let me know if you want a hand this weekend as im on my long weekend, im off sat. threw wed. so let me know if you want a hand one of those 5 days, cause my car is done now.:nice:

    Thanks everyone! As soon as I get my heads on the shortblock the ball should really start to move!


    Rob- its a melling adjustable oil pump and canton pickup that goes along with my canton oil pan. I didn't have the pan for pictures oterwise I'd have shown it too. The decision to go with the aluminum flywheel was a hard one. I've stated on here more times than I can count that I wouldn't run one in a heavy car, but as you said I'm hoping in the end the power will be great enough to offset it. I appreciate the offer of help, if I was going to be home this weekend I'd take you up on it, but I'll be at the FFW event in Norwalk. I can't do much until I get the head gaskets as I have to put the heads on the car and determine what pushrod length I need to get the valvetrain right.

    Methodical- The decision to stay NA was an easy one as I could not have afforded the shortblock AND fuel system, stand alone, power adder, etc. Maybe someday I'll really step it up, but its going to be NA for a while.
    As was already mentioned that car in the background is my wife's 2000 MR2 (Midship Run-about) spyder. Its a BLAST to drive. I never thought I'd say 138hp was a blast, but in this sub 2400lb car it is!

    blksn955.o- As for cost, I'm not sure yet (which scares me!) as I haven't recieved all my bills yet, but below are all items that will be included in the end cost of the shortblock once I have it.
    -4340 crank
    -4340 rods
    -forged pistons
    -rings

    -oil pump drive shaft
    -oil pan gasket
    -oil pan bolts

    Very cool. It makes you feel good when you KNOW your builder did a good job, nothing like that extra sense of security. The combo looks great, I think we're all as excited as you are. Keep us updated with your progress Paul!

    Actually it is a Melling 10688 HP Series pump 25%+ volume. Fully adjustable, stronger case although they still stamp the housing M68.

    My Dart shortblocks start around $4400 depending on the options, e-mail me for any info, specifics or quotes. I can supply any part from A-Z and anything from a shortblock to a complete crate engine ready to drop in, installation and dyno tuning are also available.

    Paul was lucky I consider him a good friend and I was heading out the door for vacation..lol The bill is on the way, and the pan with fitting and the gaskets should be shipping on Monday I even added a special item to the box I just had made ;) Troy it was nice meeting you as well, remember that offer anytime after I get back you are more then welcome to come down and see the DART and Man-O-War stuff to compare just give me a shout.

    Well I am supposed to be making dinner reservations for my anniversary (1st wedding anniversary is today 7/9) while my wife is taking a nap she'll have a fit if I'm talking cars while on vacation. I don't even think she know's I brought the lap top, but I was ab;le to find a nice wireless signal right now.

    The beach is hot and the margaritas are cold :cheers: :D

    See Ya Guys....
