Hi Pete

Congratulations on securing the job of building somethng you have wanted to do for so long, must be a great feeling.
I for one I am really looking forward to following the creation of what will undoubtedly be a much followed and admired build project.

Cheers

There are no words to describe how exciting this is to see.

 

@Peter as a side note, do you have the means to reproduce a cylinder head like this / cast it? I'm not so interested in re-making these as I would be the LY engine heads.

To give you an idea Gav, the first one one cost you in excess of $80k (that was for a 2 valve straight 6). I have a foundry as a client, start saving your pennies!

3d scan it  for for informative purposes Pete. 

Can be expensive, but if you have a contact can be done cost effectively. 

If you were here in SA I could assist/ arrange. 

Especially if you need to make anything if its not serviceable,  or has an element  complexity.

our if there were to be any future failures. (which I doubt if course  )

It all starts with a good block ..trying to find a block that will go 89 mm or bigger is not a cheep experience now ..i went through 5 this week. To get 1 that will be safe at 89mm perfect for my build as im using a billet 90mm stroke crank . My goal is to crack 400hp on a superflow engine dyno at 8000 rpm .stay tuned
