Had some bad luck, blew the head gasket and had to pull the motor and tear it down to the bare block.

Ran into some problem with the machining of the sleeves, they seem to have move .003 and found some cracks in the water jacket area, no water and oil mixing yet but I don't think it going to get better. For now I had the block decked so I can put it back together and make my race in April but in the end its going to need a new block.
