Need I bring up the term "Rice eater"? He has proven there is power to be made with the eaton, I am using FAR more agressive cams, a much lighter crank (versus his stock crank), I'm also using neutral balance shafts and he wasn't.

Lol, his car also hasn't been on the road in how long? I trust dyno sheets and track times more than word of mouth. Plus he is using a higher compression on the piston side, and from what I can gather, an insane head port job. Not to mention it needs atleast 100+ gas, probably runs 110 in it at minimal. IMO a car that needs 110 isn't a street car anymore.

Just stating my opinion from what I actually see happening.

Well, last I heard, he made something like 425 whp, but I don't know for sure. His head porting job was "average" in comparison to mine. Mine is going to be ported as much as possible while still maintaining a minimum runner wall thickness. Trust me there will be MANY "Ah ****, I just hit the water jacket! Grab the welder!" moments in my porting job

well you win some you lose but breaking something should not discourage u. I would give the motor a run without before putting it back in the car.

Well, Saturday was D-day, and we won. As usual it was a battle, but not nearly as difficult of a battle as we would have thought. With the help (I'm not gonna lie, he did at least 85% of the work) of David (dstinsman56) we finished the motor pull pretty flawlessly, other than one trip to Sears to buy the wrong sized socket for the axle nuts, but thanks to my neighbor we got them off. Other than that we didn't have any major problems other than some minor hang ups on hoses or pipes. After the motor was out I felt a weight lifted off my shoulders... and so did my car! Cause now the front end sits 8 inches higher! I'd also like to give a huge thanks to my friend Jess, for lending a hand and a engine hoist! Also to my friend Dan who lended.... moral support and some money to pay for the pizza and most of all thanks to David for basically doing all the work, I couldn't have done it without you guys!!!

Liposuction for cars


Finally out, and ready to be torn apart!


The newest addition to my parts supply depot (AKA my room)

Maybe so, but theres guys on there that thing a gaybo (turbo) cobalt would actually stand a chance against a fully built stock blower cobalt Gilberts car is NOT built, a set of pistons, a port clean up, and a set of joke cams is NOT "built"

Plus, I'm not rich, so we can't even compete cause he has unlimited funds. I'm not getting everything for free either. The rods are costing me $660, I need to buy ARP head studs $120, ARP main studs $120, and I'm paying for the crank machining, block honing, and head work $390 for everything (can't really complain about that).
