Going to pick up the engine from the shop tomorrow afternoon. I'll start putting it in tomorrow. Have to work some Saturday morning, so I probably won't get it finished until Sunday some time. Then I'll get to fire it up and see how a fully balanced NA engine responds. Of course, it would probably be better if it didn't have the stock cam in it, and if it had a slightly better set of heads.

Still, I think it should run pretty well. Basically a brand new engine, fully balanced rotating assembly, over bored 1mm with basically brand new pistons and rings, slightly higher compression, and some decent heads. Not to mention all the intake and exhaust mods. Heck, I might even throw it on the dyno after it's broken in... if I think it's safe! But basically I'm going to be babying this thing for a while, and saving money for an alky/water injection system before I put the blower back on.
The few, the proud, the boosted!
