They've got a long lead time as well. Probably won't see them for a few more weeks. I'll be sure to post pics of the short block when it's assembled.

Another piece of the puzzle arrived today. May pull the trigger on a fuel injection system if one of the sellers has a holiday sale.

Hurts to admit I'm now in that neighborhood. They had to be custom as we're dropping static compression and stroking at the same time.

At least they come with good rings.

Stopped by the engine builder's this morning. They're installing the rotating assembly today. Rod journals were widened 0.080" (I think) for the stroker Molnar rods that use Cheverolet bearings.

Pistons have arrived. They'll have the shortblock together shortly and measure for compression then order head gaskets.
