    Matt, just wondering how everything is coming along. I got my engine back in the car this past weekend and started it yesterday (Monday).

    I did, it is a very nice setup. I upgraded to a fluided Damper also. Well, everything was upgraded. Cam, Pistons, everything. I will say with these upgrades they take just a little bit more room and there's not much room to begin with. We started it yesterday and finished timing it this morning. Runs great. I might have a issue with the clutch. We have a week to figure everything out before I drive it to NC. I hope to do a test drive when I get home from work but I have another Mini to work on in the garage also. I might need to call off work to finishs the cars before the trip.

    Suspension up-front is rebuilt but I hit a snag with the block - probably needs new rings, possibly a whole re-build (hopefully not). Will advise...
