Wow, that's impressive! What did the set up cost you?

Parts and labor came to a little over 9,000

It took a year to do the work?
U can say that. I originally took it to the shop to have the head work done, cams, valvetrain. etc since the shop that did me leakdown told me it was my valves that were causing the blowback. WHen the shop pulled my old valves they told me nothing was wrong but since i'd already bought all the new parts I still had them do all the headwork took 3 days, slapped her back together and still blowback, they didn't want me to leave the shop with it like that till they found out what was wrong so I ended up leaving it there, and they work by appointment and were booked up to 8 months away due to El Paso always have some kind of car show or what not going on, so when they finally go to it in October found out that the last time I had built the motor the shop I used screwed me over used 80mm pistons when I needed 81.5mm needles too say my cylinders took a beating.

nice to have you back.. you lose that bodykit yet?
Of course not you know the BK will always be there, but I do intende to finally paint it lol :D

where ya been? how's the kid?
Just been busy, she's doing well starting to get stuff ready for her 2nd b-day next month
