I don't even need a good head for machining the manifolds, if you've got a bad one I could use it too. In any case, once I'm done machining them you can have the head back, it does me no good!
I've got my old head off the super eta if you want to use that. It's the same manifold as the "i". Let me know

i'm doing good, the car not so much.

I found a guy in kingston that does some pro work to redo my mani.

i dropped the car off oct15th was suppossed to be done Nov15th (yeah right)
but we know how the custom mod stuff can go.

so hopefully before x-mas i'll have it back with;
new manifold w/external wastegate. turbo's weight will be supported &
my rigid Downpipe will now have some flexpipe in it (very important)
also polished intake piping, etc.

then i'll need to worry about my 5000Km old leaking seals on my most awesome rebuild
-same shop that made the mani-
im hoping most of it is leaking from the block/pan gasket.
ah, well at least i did need those piston rings, less smoke

My bros has a trailer in north gower I know I can use.. its just that gas in his big block 454 to tow it will cost me $80 to get it there and back.

If I put a battery in it, I could probably drive it. Kidding, but true.

Sly, would you be pulling the head on it anyway? Cuz if so, i'd like to do it (here or there) just so I have the experience. If its there, I'm less likely to fark it up, but I know I could do it here too without any probs.

A small part of me wants to put this puppy back on the road to ice race it too. But i have to etest it and doubt it will pass (though it does have a new cat... Hmmmmm)

Sly I'll keep an eye out for some parts cars. Looking forward too tearing apart another one. I have a pickup if we need to tow something but has to be on a weekend and like jay this one also eats gas but not as bad as a 454.

Sylvain i need to talk to you about using the garage between now and christmas for a certain new vert's rear main. Also i need your help installing a keyless/autostart i have for it.

Well I made the mistake of going to see it for fun and it turned out too be awsome. High k but very well taken care of. Plus it would have been harder to convince sylvain to help me work on a honda
