    Should be decent.. going to send the Dominator out to get setup for E85.. those pistons aren't going to like pump gas and Race gas prices are stupid high.. yesterday I drilled four new cooling holes in the deck along with slotting two others, and cleaned out the threaded holes for the ARP head studs.. heads are back on.
    Reason for the extra holes, is Mk4 blocks are series cooled.. and I am using GenV heads(088).. they require gaskets setup for parallel cooling..
    If you use Mk4 gaskets, no matter how good your cooling system is... it will overheat(GenV gasket covers one of the two water ports in the back of the block, so it needs the additional holes).. took the manifold off, covered the bores and valley with duct tape and drilled.. set a magnet below the hole to catch the shavings.. hit it with the shop vac.. all good!
    Also a picture of the new strut and relocated battery..

    Sold off the Injection and Zoomies.. went with Rewarder collector headers, picked up single plane and an 1150 Dominator.. just got the heads back from the shop(new Viton seals and clearance for .800 lift).. built a strut brace today and am moving the battery..
    Moved the engine forward 7" last week and had DrivelinesNW cut and rebalance the driveshaft. Putting it back together now.. any of you BBC fans need a fresh Vertex Magneto? receipt from Joe Hunt.. send me PM..

    I'm in the same boat ... Punn intended . I killed a couple comp 140 pumps due to lack of filteration .. My own fault..
    thus I decided to completely change my fuel system just before I started I got injured at work and can't do the update hopefully surgery and therapy will
    And yes MarDon is awesome especially sept 6-9 this year
    Have fun and be safe
