WTF!!!! You did write a CNC program for them. What, you sooooooo busy at work now?

Glad to see you got the CNC chambers, BUT, I may be wrong, but Steel should be along at some point and tell you to get in there and clean up the area where the exhaust seat is sunken in the chamber roof. I'm guessing.

Sorry Bob this is all by hand I've had to work too much at work. lol

The exhaust is not as bad as it looks in that picture but the cnc chambers could use a little clean up IMO. There's a couple of places wher the program transitions that I don't care for. And yes I put this thread up for critique and opinions so by all means let me have it. :)hand

You want critique. Heres one:

GET THE FREEK'N DONE ALREADY!!!!!
I've built and broke 3 motors since you pulled the wrist pin. Less paly and more work. Where the hell are your prioities lately!??
LMAO :D

Well I guess thats one of the benefits to being a hobbiest versus a real racer is that you can take the winter off.

Oh and my priorities....... well they're all screwed up as usual. :shhh:

I originally ordered these heads last year for my old 12.5:1 467 that was turning 7500rpm. After its demise (without these heads) I had no budget left so I ended up building the 489 short block that I had been collecting pieces for.

Doing well, Loren. Spent Friday night with Eric and Wags..drinking beer if you can imagine that! I'm leaving for Afghanistan in about 3 and a half weeks. Will be back in August for at least 2 months worth of boating weather.

Glad to see you finally got your heads! Did you get them from Todd at KTR?

Thanks Paul I try to pay attention to detail and plan ahead. I'll keep you posted all my number crunching shows this should make a nice well rounded little engine so I'm anxious to see the results.

Loren, if it doesn't run as expected, get yourself one of these. At least it will LOOK badass;)

A few updates 3/7/12

Well I got a chance to work on the intakes last night so here's what they looked like after being rough shaped with the carbide burr. I hope to be able to finish them out next weekend.
