Well a bit of welcome news, if not surprising news.....

Engine builder just sent this text to me within the last hour.......

So now to just get the transmission vendor motivated to finish up on his end and then re-install can at least begin! Woo Hoo.

09/07/2020.....

Another surprise notification from my long time mechanic friend.

He informed me that the transmission vendor returned his phone call, inquiring on the status of the upgraded trans for my SHO.

He was told to expect it to be completed this week. Possibly by this coming Wednesday (09/09/20).

So super excited about that. I did ask if the vendor could supply me with the intimate details of what work was performed. Not only for personal knowledge therein, but equally as important for the tuning vendor when it comes time to/for tuning this developing beast of build.

My pal said he would speak with the vendor again (presumably when the vendor goes to freight it back to his shop) and pass along that query of mine.

Just thought to pass along (yet another) pleasant and surprising developing breadcrumb of news.

Hope everyone's enjoyed their long, Labor Day holiday weekend. I myself am glad I am off today. I've worked 7 of the last 8 consecutive days. I need a break.

Keep staying tuned as more info seems to be on the verge of forthcoming. Thanks for the reads/likes/etc.

Worked the last few days since the last update. Didn't have time to re-post.

Anyhow, received pics from the engine builder and still waiting on the final assembly pics to arrive in my inbox. But I'll share as soon they arrive.

In the interim, a few of the short block assembly having been completed to ogle at for the time being.

No info, or update(s) to share on the transmission front. My long time mechanic friend has been battling with some fairly serious health issues. I'm sending prayers his way so that he successfully recovers/manages from them quickly and safely.

Again, I always share as the info is provided to me. Somber day today. I myself am having reflections of the importance of today's history and the events that unfolded 19 years ago. I created a separate thread on that and I appreciate those that have replied to that, as well as having taken the time to read and reply to this ongoing rebuild thread.

God bless America and all of it's people. No matter the political affiliation, background, ethnicity, education, etc.

We can all do better. Myself included. Stay safe and stay tuned. More updates always forthcoming.

That is a beautiful sight for sure! Glad to see things are finally getting put back together after the extensive rework this block has seen and heads although not pictured. I am quite curious though.. there are no tooling marks? I thought that was the "mark" of all great builders?! LOL...

I CANNOT WAIT to see this come to completion! Any word on the trans yet?

Best time currently is 11.922 @ 115mph full weight, stock wheels, stock tires... just like it came off the show room floor.

Eek.... I did not realize the engine builder was on vacation again. I have been texting him since the last update for any addt'l pics and then called him today since the texts went unanswered.

Now I feel bad I interrupted him (albeit unknowingly on my part). That said, he was gracious enough to reach out to his partner (who's still at the shop diligently working in the builder's absence) & I was sent the following updated images just a little bit ago.

Enjoy. As I thanked the builder for providing these, I in the same step w/o skipping a beat, told him that it's almost a shame to assemble and install this as all of the efforts undertaken thus far, will not be readily seen.

He's excited though, as am I, at the prospects of what this beast of a build is anticipated to produce.

Happy motoring everyone. Hope everyone's safe, virus free, and managing all of life's ups and downs successfully and in stride.

More info forthcoming. As always, stay tuned.....
