    Well boys and girls, it's almost time. Jordan should have the block shipped by the middle of next week, and install scheduled for the first weekend of march. I have a big ass box of parts and an itch to get this shit going. After break in, engine will be tuned by Rob at Hypnotic (obviously), going with a 93oct Etune to start out with no PI, and then I have a spot for me over at Fab 9 tuning on their new Mustang dyno to get my E85 tune done and turn on the PI. Bryan has been a huge help in getting this car on the dyno and I can't thank him enough.

    I'm about ready to make some jam and come out swinging this season. I cannot wait to get this show on the road.

    It's a stock exhaust manifold with an EWG port, yes. Only temporary until CS releases their new cast manifold.

    Well today I got a big delivery. Engine from Overspeed arrived this morning, all nicely packaged away in an engine crate with my Damond motor mounts, and all the break in oil I need. Super stoked right now, I fell like a 10 year old on Christmas.

    Plan is tomorrow afternoon we are getting it over to my buddies garage and getting started. Going to have the engine out quickly and i'll be damned if the new engine isn't installed by the end of Saturday.

    I will take as many pictures as I can, but priority is getting the engine finished and running for next week and I can break it in. Fingers crossed we don't run into any issues.

    Can't believe I have come this far already. Super hyped for this season and what i'll be doing.

    That packaging looks pretty sweet. Good luck getting it done by Saturday. So many little dumb things come up, but hopefully you get shit done.

    So sad news, a bunch of family things came up today for this weekend, AND my buddy I'm doing the swap at had some things go wrong as well.

    Pushing install to next weekend sadly. But gives me more time to check everything.

    That sounds like something you would tell women when you wanna bring them back to your place.

    "Wanna come back to the shed and have some... Coffee?"

    Decided to unwrap the first layer today since it wasn't raining and gross outside.

    Gotta say... This makes me fucking excited as hell to get it in. A+++ job on packaging and presentation. Even comes with the oil pan (didn't think it would). I am ready to tear shit up. Just driving today in this beautiful weather and actually getting into boost felt so good... Car still pulls like a train with 0 meth and only allowing myself to hit 17psi or so. I'll be sure to take even more pictures once it's out of the plastic and on a good surface for install....

    Progress so far. Just routing the harness the rest of the way and getting things finished up.

    Turns out my HG was fucked, and my VVT fhaun was stretched a lot. Glad we pulled it when we did. Compression is probably low on a cylinder or 2 and rings frying, pushing oil from the gasket. Besides that we are making our way and first start should be tomorrow. Trying to take as many pics as possible but it's been hard in between trying to get this shit done. Lot more work than anticipated but we good. Stoked for first start :)

    Well after everything, engine is in. Started up with no issues. Have a few little things to sort out, but that will come with time. Also have no power steering because I don't think the PS was plugged in LOL.

    I just wanted to thank everyone who has helped me get here. It's been a group and forum effort. Just need a dump pipe welded up and then we can get this break in over with and letting it rip :)
