Thanks to Will Sadler and Bryan Shugg(minor roll ) for all their help taking this thing apart. Now I need to find a place to sell the parts and start a motor fund.

The fourth picture is the best for showing how the work was split up today. But, then again, can you REALLY trust a guy that wears black socks with tennis shoes and shorts.

WOW! That ain't pretty!

While wandering the pits last nite at the Hooters Cup Race I ran into Kenny Troutman of KT Engines (www.ktengines.com) and we talked about your engine. His exact words were:

"from the factory the 4.6L is crap for racing, but with a few upgrades, mostly the same upgrades for a NASCAR motor you can make them fairly reliable and powerful and they rev better than a pushrod motor"

you gonna rebuild it?
