A couple notes about the awesome engine:
It's getting a new crank, new moly rings, Clevite bearings, new head bolts and washers, new valve seals, new belts including timing, a Felpro head gasket and full engine gasket kit (and I'm not stingy with the RTV, either) and whatever machine work the shop says it needs. The block is being hot-tanked and I'll be chemical-flushing the radiator to get all the rust and slime out. The front struts are being replaced with Rockauto bargain-basement Gabriels (I think, maybe they're Monroes) and the brake system will be gone through and equipped with Speedbleeders. I'm not sure what the hell else I'll be doing, but the AC will be deleted because 1) the lines were empty and 2.) AC delete = MOAR POWAR, duh. Also, weight reduction.
Of note for racers in the Great White North (i.e., north of Savannah, GA:) The heater core is questionable and the heater valve is toast. I'll fab in a ballcock (yes, I said "ball" and "cock,") valve to engage or bypass it. If it blows it's on the driver's side and you'll have very warm legs.
