    Happiness is spending money on your ride :D

    ordered from Modular Performance:
    ModMax Forged H-beam rods
    Rear Main Seal

    From MMR:
    Complete Plug and Dowel kit for Modular blocks
    MMR Sidebolt and Washer kit for Romeo blocks
    Factory Ford front seal

    since Modular Performance is in Michigan, I put the order on 3-day select so I can have these during the week. MMR is down by San Diego, so once these parts arrive, it's engine building time :nice:

    Up next I have a Summit order to do (motor mounts) and an eBay purchase (Prof. Prod. Typhoon lower)

    Local dealer or the Napa parts I have at school will get the rest :flag:

    Progress for today: I cleaned up the heads with the gasket scrapper and removed the cams. I took the P/S pump and the oil filter/coolant adapter to school to clean them up in the parts washer. Bearings should arrive tomorrow (Napa ordered me ones for a Windsor block, not a Romeo), so I'll install them and the new crank before going to sleep (I work graveyard tomorrow)

    this is how it sits now. The connecting rods are still on backorder from MP. In fact I'm so ****ed off to the point that I'm cancelling the order through them, waiting th refund and ordering the rods from MMR who does have the rods in stock. No Good Guys show for me this weekend, so yeah, I'm kinda cheesed at the moment

    Take 2 with the connecting rods has been ordered. This time, I went with MMR. Might be cutting this close with Knott's. Especially now that I'm considering a cam upgrade

    And with forged internals you'll be able to reap the benefits of those high rpms gains as well! What's crazy is my stage 2.25 blower cams wont sound nearly as fierce as those stage 2's you'll be getting.

    It's quite tragic, although with a centri blower you should be able to run more overlap for up top gains, PD blower cams are even worse.

    every video I've heard with Stage 2's, especially the VT/CMS's, have been the fiercest cams I've heard with some awesome gains. I can't wait to hear it on the dyno :D
