    Jonathan is in the middle of buying a house and everything is in storage. We brought the engine to my house to start assembling it some more since he got more parts.

    He ported the Gt40 heads himself and had the machine shop mill them and put new bigger valves in them. I forget exactly what size they are but they will flow alot better. Heres some pics to get the thread going again.

    We installed a new B cam in place of the F cam that was in there. Installed the heads etc.
    Out with the F cam
