More updates coming soon. Hopefully serious eye candy.

Cam swap is done. Dowels don't keep lifters from falling. I put them in anyway (right [passenger] side was super tight), held my breath, and did the swap.

From earlier, pics of mounting for intercooler water pump. I have a pre-formed dogleg hose from my old BMW racecar that should work to get to the core support (see grommet), and then have stainless 90* barbs to turn that corner.

The pin balancer kit that came with the blower included a worthless drill bit. It didn't even fit thru the guide hole - it was just oversized. Fortunately, I was able to use my own (correctly sized) drill bit, which is cobalt (so it actually worked, which I highly doubt would have been true for the included bit). I've seen rolled pins before, but I'm only running 8.5psi, so not worried.
