    Well Mustang time for a new motivator.....

    As my Vietnamese friend Andy said to me - "That not good"

    Might as well see if I can get the old gal from 90-100.


    Time for something new- the old one isn't recovering from this......

    Why not an all aluminum 588??? Put Max, Maggie and the other kids on a diet of table scraps for a few months, they will live...

    Seriously, I think one of Gordo's SS engines would be the shizzy in your ride... He must have built 100+ of them by now...

    Always wanted something like that for this boat, and new this platform wasn't indefinite especially at the output level per dollar.

    I gotta say though for a mill I only moderately spent money on to begin with (poverty sucks) I realistically got 15 years of wide open running before pop goes teh weasel.

    Seems if I build one or likely have one built - I might as well build one I can interchange between both boats if my ilmor 710 ever has to be pulled.

    2M I'm certain Gordo makes a great mill, and that I'd really like working with him,

    but Alexi gets my next chunk of motor business- after a decades worth of help on weekends and just general being a friend this one goes to him.

    Here I am having an engine-gasm.
