Wow what a great way to kill myself , Ill install this may as well be Pro Stock motor in my sappy little GTX ...

So -- it wasnt as easy as I thought ,

The transaction ended up being a little skewed ..

( I didnt buy it from Dave )

It didnt look anything like the picture ..

So Dudek cleaned things up for me a little bit.

Meanwhile how is my turd car gonna hold up to all this HP .

So in went the cage .

The Only reason Im starting this post is because its way too cold outside ..

We had to start an air grabber factory with all the stuff going on ..

The BEA stuff is OK , but it is not like for like with the original stuff.

i hear you on the coldness. Last winter i was next to outside and used air tools to grind was horrible, you freeze your hands off. I was almost relieved when i would get burnt welding as i would distract me from the coldness
