Glad to see this thing still going, mine hasn't even been finished yet.  Have you gotten a hood to fit on with that motor in there?  It doesn't look like mine will clear the cam gears.  And one last thing, have you thought about o-ringing the head and block?  It might help if you are consistantly having head issues.

I trimmed the stock turbo hood scoop and the cam gears/cover fit right in the scoop.

You can see the cam cover is the below shot (scoop was off for painting)

Here's a couple shots of the cam cover cutout.   I usually run a cam cover, the front of my engine is off trying to find a leak





Got a chance to drive the car some more this week after the head gasket replacement since the weather was in the 50's.  Runs strong at about 17 psi (last motor ran 30+).   I turned it all the way down to get some miles on the motor.

Let my son drive it for the first time.   Handled the heavy clutch like a pro.   Even broke them loose in second gear, didn't panic, got out of it and got traction and then leaned on it again.    After about 20 min of driving and we were home  he said "ain't gonna lie, I was scared the whole time".   Then I told him the boost was set about half and all he said was oh shit.   I was grinning for 3 hours.

Here's one of the runs





Update on the Dash Pod.   Still need to work on forming the aluminum cover as well as integrating the shift light

That's going to be an awesome memory that will stay with you forever. "ain't gonna lie, I was scared the whole time." "Son, that was only super saiyan one, I haven't even showed you god mode yet..."  haha  :D
