Jeff - what's the ETA on the engine? I enjoy your videos, and want to see you get back to the 911 that's been sitting under a car cover :-)

So many of you have been asking me 'What is happening with the engine for the 911'?
So here is a bit of an update.

Was greeted with a Pelican Parts ad before I was able to watch your video. I watched the whole thing so you're welcome for me getting Wayne to pay you for being here LOL

Interested to see the product for the rocker arms. I was worried about leaks when i did my rebuild. I ended up using the RSR seals plus I tightened the pinch bolt tighter than spec per suggestions from pros here. No leaks after 5,000 miles so far but I might be one of the lucky ones.

I have to ask.. what's your history with the shop in L.A.? Are there no reliable shops down under?
Just curious what led you to that particular machine shop....

Neil reached out to me as he was keen to talk about many myths with 911 engine building and also to upgrade to some new tech in these old engines. And when someone who spent 10+ years in F1 and then with Andial offers to let you in their shop and teach you how to build an engine, you can't say no

Love this build, but was wondering when we were going to get another update. I have watched the whole series twice.
Canít wait to see more.

I spoke to Neil a few days ago, and he is doing some final work on the Pistons before it is ready to send back to me. Don't worry as soon as I have something more on this I will let you all know
