This thing is going to be nuts, all the work is so cleanly done. Headers look sweet
HAHAHA, it's just a ways off lol. I'll have some update pics today, I'm picking the engine up from my painter. We had some custom A08 SG mixed up in a high temp enamel and I must say from the pics it's gonna be a jewel sitting in the engine bay.

I'm making small steps. I have the complete engine painted and ready for final assembly, the bottom end should start going back together this week. I've got the front suspension out making room for the MCS triples and BW goodies. Here's a pic of the oe CSL spindles with the spacers welded on for the BW control arms.

The CSL spindles make for a little wider front track no? Do you know if they're any lighter than the standard ones? just curious

Good luck with starting on that list..

The CSL spindles provide a slightly wider front track and increased caster but the weight is the same.

I've made some progress but none on the engine. I'm moving again soon, back to my home state of Kansas so most of my time has been spent getting the thing ready to be moved.

I've actually got some big news coming on the engine front that I hope to have finalized next week. For those that are big in the S62 game and have any familiarity with the Ganassi DP motors you may be able to guess what's coming.

For now, here are some pics of what I've been up to. Pics of the rear MCS's will come Sunday when I have those installed.
