Thanks, just reread your thread and you should be proud. Very nice results that'll surely drive very nicely on the street as well as track. I like the use of judicious fabrication rather than just buying more parts.

I also admire creative thinking rather than "cookie cutter" engines that simply emulate 30 year old formulas. We've came so far in some areas technologically that looking back wards for more than to see where we came from seems poorly planned. I love vintage racing, but why build a 934 engine for the street if efficiency is the goal. We're still limited by the same parameters of physics and heat limitations of our heads. This doesn't mean we should use the same designs to manipulate them to the best of our abilities.

Nicely done. I only hope mine comes as close to my goals.
