Thumbs up Crafting That Dream True Blue N/A 4.0L!

Well Ive been busy as a bee in my garage creating my dreamy N/A 4.0L, will consist of:
All Porting, machining boring.
Oversized Pistons, rings, bearings.
New seals and rings and bearings.
Plus JIMMOCK Dev5 for the top.
All Blue block and chrome, hidden wiring etc.

Basically just been doing some makeover work while my money piles up to put in the list above, here are some pics of my work. This is an EB 4.0L I bought, so i still got my 3.9L MPI in the car.

(OLD PHOTOS REMOVED, NEW ONES FURTHER ON)

Re: Crafting That Dream True Blue N/A 4.0L!

ya its a definate thing to happen, its being done as the money comes in, i got $5000 which is going to a set of el gt replicas, manual conversion and good alarm. the rest will be spent on bottom end and seals, gaskets, bearings, pistons, machining etc ($1200). then money being saved for the top, pictures will be added every couple of days so stay tuned folks.

Awesome stuff dude. I wish I had the resources (read: brains) to pull something like that off! Have you done anything like this before?
