In my experience building ANY engine that will outrun anything at all isn't for penny pinchers.

I raced big blocks on gas and alcohol from late 60's through late 80's and had none of the issues I have had with this set up. I have never flogged this thing anywhere near the way I did in those days. At any rate it is up and running again and I'm moving on. Next time I'm going to supervise every detail and get it done locally. Very upsetting to see an engine builder make 15 plus 900hp pulls on a dyno and send $50k plus big blocks to offshore boaters and not believe he knows his stuff. Perhaps he does and my deal was a fluke. At any rate it is up and running again and I'm moving on. Next time I'm going to supervise every detail and get it done locally.
