Finally pulled the "s" code moter out of the cougar. It was already .030" over so I am having it sonigraphed then .040" TRW flat tops, decked, balanced, port matched, dual profile comp cam, shift kitted C6, 3.35:1 gears in the 9", reprofiled dist. Repaint the engine bay after steaming, powder coat what I can and spray the new undercoat (rust preventitive) and then it will be rock and roll time. All it takes is money. How the hell do I talk myself into these projects!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11
