393's ready to pick up.

Just needs a little more assembly and we're ready for the engine dyno. I'll pick it up Wednesday next week. This is the only time I get get there.

Hopefully I can get it on the engine dyno for the week 7th-11th Nov. Then a week later have it in the car.

Can't wait

Nice work Brenx , did you get to the bottom of the stuff up's in clearances after you checked everything over? All the best with your fit - up and can't wait to see some dyno numbers and some footage from the track when you let her rip!!!

won't be going in the car until it has been on pavtek's dyno. I'm not running the engine in. This way I can be sure it's right.

Re: 393's ready to pick up.

I ran my engine on saturday no driving but ran it for about ten minutes .
The best feeling in the world showing it of to my dad and uncle. 1800rpm was the most it revved to as it just shakes everything in the shed and shakes all the windows in the house .Nastest thing I have ever heard and not just because its mine
Just wanted to share that with yous

Re: 393's ready to pick up.

Cam specs not important. The results the important bit

Sure does. Hopefully it can bet sorted for the PFM all ford nationals. I'm having doubts. 3 weeks to go and still plenty of work to do.
