I was following that build on BritishV8.org, but there has been no updates for quite some time - http://forum.britishv8.org/read.php?13,34236

On another note; the last hairline crack in my block has been welded and the block handed back to the machine shop for trial fitting of the crank. We are going to make a ladder frame that connects the five main bearing caps together. We will fit ARP studs that are a bit longer to cover the 3/8" thick steel ladder frame.

Camshaft will be ordered from Penta Motorsport soon

Good call on the cam, at least you get a full sized base circle. Which profile are you going to get ?

I have since decided to revise the camshaft spec. Especially regarding the overall valve lift which is excessive on a road engine IMO.
