Nice work matt! Looks good, be even better once its all broken in I'm sure!

If I was breaking in my cam at 3am at my place I'd be shot (not just by the neighbours)

Road testing it later in the early hours of the morning was better.

Dave, yes it has plenty of pickup :). So far I'm very happy with it. I've been playing catch up in the workshop and have a few jobs to do on Bluey before I venture out again. Hopefully I'll get some done over the weekend. Still some mods to do before dyno too.

Thanks Bugboymatt, that was a late night pic just before putting the engine in. Shame we didn't have time to put leads and belt on and tidy up things. It is what it is... :)

Same to Tarin and Craig, cheers guys and ..... it is what it is

Moving forward....???? nothing to do with moving forward Mac. I use what I recommend and most clients I build engines for are looking for a breather system that is not quite so exxy as a Berg or CSP breather. The CB breather is adequate and consequently I'm using one. I modify or rework as necessary, but essentially I think they work fine.

Over the weekend I caught up on a few jobs that we ran out of time for prior to the Sydney trip

I made these thermostat style flaps for directing air better onto the heads. An instant change in reduced oil temps was noted (secretly glad the Sydney Showdown was postponed).

^^^ Thanks fella's

At last I got to fit the last of the JPM goodies. I've been waiting as I wanted to get a feel for the engine with the normal IDA setup before fitting the awesome JPM velocity stacks and venturi's.

So as usual ... it's, out with the old ..... and with the new
