I came across a similar product last year when doing research for a project

http://durafix.com/

Their demonstration video is pretty good.
It's definitely something I'm considering when this project rolls around.
I need to finish building the motor first though

Stock springs are deadly above 7200. Either start floating or snap, especially with a higher lift cam. And isn't a 284 a very aggressive cam?

As I said I don't plan on going over 7000 with them. On tired springs I wouldn't even try it, but with fresh springs it should be fine. The 284 cam is in the middle of the Schrick range for the M20. The 272 is their street/DD cam, the 284 is the hi-performance street/mild track cam, the 288 cam is for ‘street legal’ track cars, and the 304 is for flat out race cars.

Springs aren't that expensive. Why not upgrade?

A set of stock replacement springs is ~$70 vs performance springs which are ~$330. I can put that money I saved towards the adjustable cam gear I'll need. This is a budget stroker after all.

Yeah, they've got some nice stuff on their site, but there are no posted prices.

Small update..
I picked up the head and the block from the machine shop today...

Head decked



Block decked 0.5mm



Bores deglazed



I've got a lead on a flywheel and I'm taking the crank to a shop tomorrow evening to get an idea of how easy/difficult it's going to be to balance it. This weekend I'll work on prepping the block for paint.

What color are you going to paint the block?

Can't wait to see this thing in action.

Good luck.

Still deciding what colours to choose between the block and valve cover, and if I want to paint the intake manifold.
