It feels like Christmas! Cracking into the box to get the motor mounted up to a stand, then it's off to engine build for tear down.

That's a heck of a build list. I'm interested to see the numbers it puts out in the end.

Mounting up the motor from the box to a stand so it can be pushed into our clean, climate controlled engine build rooms for tear down.

Just wondering how you can say highest performance engine build when it has not be completed.

I mean I think the New GT 3.5 is the highest performance engine build for the 3.5 Eco. Or maybe Stephen Keen build? I think he is shooting for 1100 HP? Should be close on that.

For this specific motor, we are combining all of the performance engine work into one 3.5L that we offer. Sleeving, deck bracing, custom pistons, much stronger rods, our custom CNC porting and head work, upgraded head studs and so on. We have yet to put everything together into one engine before. We have pieced together mods here and there on different motors but this is the first with all the cards on the table.

The final gains will be dependent on the customer and their setup. We are building this motor for racing purposes and the block can handle 750-800hp but that depends on your fuel, oiling and other systems to support.

Most of the engine covers are off before lunch, the heads will be off soon and over to our Cylinder Head department for cleaning, inspection, and tear down!

Heads and oil pan are off! Next, we bring the heads over to the Cylinder Head department to get cleaned, disassembled, and prepped for CNC.

With the crank, pistons, and rods out, we should be down to a bare block in no time!
