Update: I dropped the car off to my builder today, as all parts are in and the motor is scheduled to be back from the machine shop tomorrow morning. Tear down will start tomorrow along with the shortblock being assembled. Everything is expected to be mostly installed by the end of this week. Then next week it gets its initial break-in on the dyno. After that, I will be taking it a bit easy with just a base map, then going balls out on an E85 tune.
I'm still debating on getting headers. My tuner is saying I am looking at about more 50-60 tq with headers running E. But I'm not liking the price of the ones I like. If I go with the headers, I will be selling my DAMD steering wheel I have on order from the group buy.

Pics will be added if I find time to drop by the shop during the install.
