Hi Manthri - Thanks for all the engine porn. Drew Greg and I ran into Ray Korman at the Hilton Head Concourse three weeks ago. He was displaying one of his race cars. We got into a discussion with him about his intake manifolds (Drew and I both have the same manifold you have in your car), and Ray said "Yeah, we had to stop making those when our supplier's building burned down, with all the drawings inside. Volume was just too low to recreate those." Ray is in his 90s and they haven't offered that manifold for many years now, but he remembered the story like it was yesterday.

That’s an interesting story. Thanks for that :)

I wonder how we even got one from them.

Some random pics from the buttoning up stage. New carpet, new door panels, new center console wrap in pleather, new headliner. It’s all nice. The trunk is decent. If I had it to do over again, I think I’d use a darker felt (I know, it’s all non-standard) and do the wheel arches with Wiola’s repro parts. Gotta get new sunroof cables from rogerstii, and install that thing, and then I think we can get outta pit lane for now.

First day back on the road. California life. What’s not to like?

500 mile check up. Adjust valves, change oil, retorque head, fit AC system. And add bling to the hood. I like that logo. Wasn’t sure what that would look like.

Love the motor. Not nearly the low end loss of torque I thought might happen, and very nice giddy up on the high end. The thing is a joy to drive.

I need one of them fancy photographers. I’m no good at this. But I put this bling on there. It’s not terribly noticeable, but it looks good if you search it out.
