I picked up my polished intake manifold last Friday. It took twice as long as they said it would (5 weeks), but looks awesome - worth every penny I spent! The place that did the work is Barnes Metal Polishing in Medina, NY.
Last weekend a friend helped me take all the measurements of my engine to make sure nothing was broke, warped, etc... Everything checked out - bores were straight, all crank & rod journals were to OE specs, etc... This week the heads and block will be getting hot tanked. Then since everything will be all clean, I can start putting the engine back together. Still on target to get the engine done by mid-May. I also placed a huge order of parts from Summit today. It's real easy to get carried away with ordering parts.
As always, you can see updated build pics here.
