Here I'm trying to figure out what I have and what I still need.

I got the rotating assemble back from being balanced today. I'm hoping to get the short block put together this weekend.

I still need to get:
PushRods
Coil Brackets

yes lq4 block, crank, & heads (317) From what I have read these heads have the same flow as zo6 heads with a larger combustion chamber (lower static compression). The best of both worlds for my application. Atleast till I can get better heads down the road.

I think the preferred term for these kinds of projects is "Twinkie"...derived from the derogatory racial epithet of a similar definition.
