Well here it is, ready to fire up.
Need to get a few gallons of fuel first.
Going to try and get it to the track this year, but there is no promise on that.

Considering this is the first engine Bruce has had that doesn't require pulling a string to start it, he'll be recording it. :lol:

Ray is just getting nervous because he knows that my car "NOW" has the potential to run with his dinosaur.....

That's why he's going down to the track in a few weeks to see what his new motor does and then he'll make sure mine doesn't run up against his.

But it's ok, even if he does beat me, my car will be right there next to his. Just seeing him sweat will be a good enough reward.

If all you wanted was to see me sweat, just come over when its 90 degrees out. You could have saved a lot of money on engines and race cars. :scratch:

I've already seen that when you were grilling burgers in your shorts, not a pretty sight....LMAO

Speaking of that, bring some of that prosciutto wrapped around mozzarella with an olive, all stuck on a tooth pick.

All I can say is I'm looking forward to hearing this motor come to life.

Fingers crossed that it performs better than the last motor.

I was born beautiful, not rich like you.
I can't even afford those Swanson salisbury steaks at your local grocery store.

Well Ray got the motor up and running. After a few adjustments and the timing set, the motor sounds great.
Here is a link to a few video's and a special guest appearance by Rapid Ray....LOL
