It must be a great feeling to finally have the engine installed after such a long time. Yours is not the only project dragging out over time, I have a couple being much older.

That's a negatory there good buddy. (..Smokey & The Bandit talk)

Points only for also having the bellhosing and clutch-fork installed prior to install.

I've done that before and have a rotating ratchet that makes those bolts easier.

You have got to be kidding about that right?

Not meant to go off topic on Sterling's awesome thread, but someone had mentioned about the M5 intake trumpets on an ITB 928. This project will be coming out of mothballs pretty soon.

AMEN!!!! Very well said Sterling.

I've been wondering about your project for quite some time now, glad to hear it's ramping up again.

It's getting there.







I had to move the hood so I may as well take a pic.

Just a fantastic job, a huge amount of work right there

Got to admire the dedication.

When it’s all said in done it will be so interesting to see dyno results for the set up.

Hope to see you up and running soon

Does a healthy dose of OCD and ADD count?
