    Hi Smitty, sorry to post here but I'm trying to PM you about some problems I'm having with the forum logging me out, and every time I try and send a PM I get this...

    "Smitty2 has exceeded their stored private messages quota and cannot accept further messages until they clear some space."

    Can you send me a PM so I can get this working..?

    Looking good mate. You'll be smelling that new engine build smell real soon. Have you decided on a cam yet?

    going to talk to my head man ( I was only running basic cleaned up VL big valve heads at the time the engine popped)
    and see what he reckons.. on torque, airflow etc, manifold match and then cam choice

    I have good comp from the piston/block combo, want to have an engine that grunts out of corners and
    will push all the way to 6500ish and I want to have the heads .. and then the cam choice for that to happen.

    keeping an open mind at the 'mo
