    I've been working on my megasquirt journey for over a year now... Hopefully by the time you get to that point, I can offer you some helpful advice. In my defense, my car is at my parents place in the barn and I live 2 hours away so I don't get time to work on it often.

    Updates.

    I ended up buying an already built/ported LSJ head. I already dropped it off at a machine shop to get cleaned up and my +1mm Ferrea Valves installed.





    A few months ago I ended up getting my hands on a ported LSJ intake manifold. So that'll be going on the engine.




    I also picked up a phenolic head to intake manifold spacer to help with cooling.

    Very nice! Just a bit too clean, please put some grime on it so I can understand what I'm looking at. Sexy valves by the way.

    Don't worry nothing will be done until it's too late, there is money to be made.

    Done.
    It doesn't look like much but it should be able to hold 600-700hp and hopefully make 400+whp with the TVS.

    Maybe in the spring. My garage isn't heated yet and it gets decently cold up here in PA.

    Oh yeah, forgot about that. Still, with a garage that nice it makes one think that it would be heated.
