    It was originally whippled. I’ll be going with stock crank, Forged pistons, I-beam rods unless I get get a set of H made within a few weeks.

    Main stud kit has landed, these will be installed and main bores honed back to spec. Then clearances will be set with coated bearings.

    I would stick with the I beam if you can swing it.

    11:1 Diamond Pistons are here, these come with .180” wall wrist pins and a Total Seal ring pack.

    More progress, cylinder torque plates! Got them roughed in, these will get bored oversized to clear any bore combo and both sides resurfaced flat. From there, spacers are made to fit the head studs.

    Using torque plates or deck plates as some call them, is the only way to ensure cylinders are straight and round when the cylinder heads are torqued up for final assembly. Bores are distorted from fastener torque and will become egg shaped if honed without simulating the heads being installed. Same principle with main bores being torqued up, however that’s not as critical in an iron block application.

    Torque plates have been proven to increase ring seal and adds life to your rings and pistons. This translates directly to horsepower, as the rings have less blow by and keep cylinder pressures where they belong, in the cylinder, not your crankcase!

    What plans do you have for the heads/cams?
    Any thoughts on intake manifold?

    There was the Fox body build that switched over to a carb setup, that combined with the intake manifold seemed to be the big factor in it making big NA power. I'd be interested to see what these are capable of while still retaining our efi
