I plan on it

I am trying like hell to have mine running. Just have to finish exhaust and intake and a little wiring. Intercooler may be something small just to get it running.

What happened to the block,piston and crank. Do I need to ask? ;)
Well aparently forged pistons dont like missing pieces
of block so well: http://hometown.aol.com/russjerome/images/dsc03513.jpg

Bent crank was only noticed after trying to figure out why
main bearings had odd wear.....just say no to cast I guess.
Motor has a lot of miles on it, apears to be recent failure.
Would not feel so bad but complete motor was profesionaly
built assembled just so I would not blame myself, guess who
is assembling this one ;) Crank shows .006" at middle bearing
and was just turned .010 under a year ago.

Mine will be there. I already signed up for TU's dyno day Saturday.
I want to give Paul a chance to tune it with some good gas. :thumb:

Sorry to here that Russ, but now I don't feel so bad about spending an extra $90 for my forged crank (20 for the crank and 70 to get it turned ). When I already had a good cast one. :D .
I'm hopeing to see your 16v dakota trailering in your 16v Omni. I'm drooling just thinking about it :D :D
