I have started over on this engine 4 times, it has as many imposters as Hitler!

I, work on & in these engines on a weekly basis, I, have to use a 15 ft ladder to go in and clean the cyl's when a piston is pulled, to make sure the cyl piston oilers are not clogged and so it's clean so the engineers can check cyl wear & taper.

:D :D Hey guys...hawaii here to reveal....JAKE's my man! Don Corleone said " Only Jake can do you this service!" Who am I to screw with the DON! When Jake and I got into the 2615 build with me and Carey(BECK), I knew the speedster would fly RIGHT and figured I needed something to get a little dirty.

Said to JAKE.."let's build a monster"...working on vehicle , JAKE, as we speak!! Funny, my kids overhear my conversations and my 9 year old son's teacher calls to see how I'm doing ..heard I got RABIES...anyway this build's gonna be nuts...Glad all going to have fun with this one...at my expense of course...

Saw nice rat rod the other day....things slow out here on North Shore Oahu: a slow 18 month meticulomania build "is all good"...give the man some time and space to get that cam grind right.....?.??? Well guys, sunset surf's up....gonna WAX IT!!!

There was a Pinz on "The Unit" last week. Looked really nice. I think a slammed and chopped Pinz would make an awesome look! We need a Photochop of it as a teaser. I wonder? Can you get two carseats, in that thing :D

This all sounds very wild. I would be thrilled to be part of this build. A powerplant like this will need all the proper support and support systems in the car. Keep me informed and we will help to plan out the rest of the build.
