Thanks, Bill. I read Steve's entire site, and I am definitely slowing down. These things do not work out when rushed. Waiting (a very long time) for the Euro varioram may be tempting.

What this has shown me is that my original idea of slowly building my own engine (I am fairly attached to it) may be the most expensive route rather than the most economical.

Putting quality parts in the bottom end and replacing P&Cs, the crank, etc. to get something like a SS 3.4 would be far more $$$ than the engine swaps. A supercharger and the required strengthening would total even more, since reliability and longevity are high on my list.

I really enjoyed reading Steve's site and wondering how he got into the business. It seems like a great combination of expertise and down to earth approaches, and I feel fortunate that he is not all the way across the country.
