A big congrats to Jess. That school thing is a big one.
That short block sure looks like a beauty. Fun stuff, Peter.
Some of you know I've been working hard and saving for quite a while to pay for a new shortblock. It really hasn't been easy since my wife left her full time job and went back to school full time to complete her Bachelors degree. The extra mod money went to tuition, books, and bills when that happened. Jess finishes her last three classes this summer and graduates August 13 from MTSU! Congrats Jess (MJsSRT)!!!
Anyways, another thanks to the IRS saving tax money for us the past two years... looks like I can finally finish paying the motor off! Andy has been great working with me during this rough patch and even changing directions from a 392 at first to the 8.5:1 420ci below. Here's a pic I received from Andy last night via txt, after all the hard work looks like its finally paying off!!!

Sounds like I gotta save the pennies and eat more ramen so I can afford a beefier transmission next, or maybe that's next years tax return... who knows... lol! Then maybe a D1SC or something similar someday... the mod bug never ends does it?
nice choice there can not wait to see pics of mine as I went with a 9.25 419 with cometic phuzion gaskets and cometic intake gaskets. you will not be sorry with a 419. shorter stroke and the bore is only .005 over stock bore.

Now I feel sheepish- its 8.5:1 compression, not 9.5 like I stated above. This project has been in the works so long I forgot the fine details and had to reask Andy. Should be closer to 9:1 with heads...Just means I can throw a few more lbs on it when the time comes.
Congrats! Enjoy her...
