as many of you know i'm trying to get ready for the race in march, well due to a heavy foot my motor let loose a couple of weeks ago. i'll be tearing the motor and pump out today to survey the damage, i'll try to post some pics tonight of my progress. I did'nt know what forum to put this in so feel free to move it to it's rightfull place.

well guys i found out why it spit a lash cap (rrrrrr) that f#cking comp cams specd me the wrong valve springs for my cam, hence the valve float and the lash cap coming off. so i said f-it and orderd a set of tfs aluminum heads  :o . this ford should run a lot better know ;D with the flow #s and my combo out of the box i should be getting about 650hp. now i'm worried that the A-cut impeller i'm putting in tomarrow isnt going to be big enough any thoughts.
