    Here are some progress pics on the 427 build. The rotating assembly is in. With the pistons measuring 0.015" under the deck and with 0.030" head gaskets, the compression ratio is going to end up at 9.4:1. Perfect for running a pump gas tune on the street.

    Calico coated bearings in and clearances checked.







    Starting to look like an engine!

    Brought the new engine home last night. Huge thank you to my friend Brandon at Geared Up Motorsports for helping me get this thing machined and assembled. It turned out beautiful.
