    Which TTi 's are you running ?
    I have 1 7/8" W2 race with 3.5" collectors and I want to know where to install my O2 bungs so they can be ready to go when I install the engine.
    Not sure where I will have the most clearance for the sensors.
    Do you have any pics of the collector area ?

      Need to buy a new battery for this thing tomorrow....in my spare time...LOL

      Any way...working on getting the front end aligned....I worked on it the other day but did not get done as I am having a problem with the camber on the passenger side....I have a friend lined up to do it tomorrow.....but i am going to give it another shot in the morning..

      Started it up a couple of days ago running on E85 for the 1st time...had to adjust the idle circuit ....after a few minutes of warming up.....it sounded great...
      Trying to get it out to the track by the end of the months if these dam 904s will leave me alone....

      Yeah, there isn't jack shit up here.. I mean You can order it in bulk I believe from one of the fueling businesses. But not a normal pump thing. I was thinking about getting a 55g drum of 110 or something, but damn shipping is pricey.

      not so sure about that head gasket.....we have water in the oil....drained the milk shake....let it set for a couple of days and let the water evaporate from the valve train...drain water from radiator and put fresh oil and filter...did a compression test and all cylinders are at 160 lbs..

      so...water is coming from timing chain cover ...cracked cylinder...or intake....intake has been off and on with new gasket...

      So to make thing easier...I am swapping out engines...have another engine with a little better parts........took out hydraulic cam and replaced with MP 557 ..got it degreed in at 105.5....I love that big Moroso degree wheel...engine is zero decked with kb107 pistons...h beams rods and internally balanced with stock set of eddy heads...intake to be eddy air gap or holley strip dominator....750 holley on GAS.....

            The 75 Duster is home now.....the guy who was racing it wants to race his own car for Mats....
            I loaned him a 360/904 motor/trans combo...plus driveshaft and headers to put in his Duster...as he runs big blocks

            The 75 Duster will get a roll bar this summer...as the engine I loaned him was going in this car...the old 360 that came out of the 71 Fuster...
