    Bit of an update: waiting for the rotating assembly and block to get back from machinist. he is waiting on a tool so he can measure the windows in piston accurately, dont ask me what that means. i think because he does block work in a cnc it has something to do with it.
    It should have been back ages ago but piston ordered were wrong so had to get another set.
    The bores had a ring groove at TDC which had to be honed out, there was also signs of fuel washing the bores. i wont mention who the tuner was.
    The rotating assembly has been balanced with flywheel, clutch and harmonic balancer attached.
    Once the parts are back ,hopefully by wednesday, it will take a few weeks to get together. Builder said it takes him about 20hrs to build the engine, but have to allow a week waiting on the cam ,once its specced.

    These new heads should work really well, small port ,high velocity

    Just ran out of time to have engine finished before Xmas . I did have to buy another car because I gave my daughter the 2014 VW polo I use as a run about. Grabbed the new VW polo, basically 50mm bigger rite around, smaller 1.0L 3 cyl engine with 12kw more power, 6 speed instead of 5. Cranked out 2500km so far and a great little car, the 6 speed gearbox is a cracker, avg 4.9L/100 so far. It's only about 430wkw down on wht the senator will have , fun anyway
