Green light on crank !! now to get r/a finalized, cryo'd and balanced. Hopefully to create my short-block able to hold 444@15PSI boost.

Talked to Total Seal who recommended their MaxSeal m7560-65 gapless set for n/a to 15psi boost .. got spec's from Ross to assure fit, they still have card on my NOS pistons.

Want to send pistons to Calico for ceramic top coat to help piston stay cooler and add anti-scuff side coat. Calico does not know and wont guess, even ball-park, on the weight coating adds was just going to get an estimate and use for a balance figure figuring it would be a tiny amount ??? (so I could do after balance)

Verifying KB 3.00 pins fit sweetly else I will replace them with better H-13 3.125 cut-down pins

My Cat 4340 H-beams have ARP 8740 but not sure whether 3/8 or 7/16. Thinking I better upgrade to larger bolts if they are 3/8 and its possible to do so. Probably better for 7/16 ARP 2000 if I do upgrade.
