    So after about 150 miles on a Supertec 2.4 ModS engine and transmission on the Green 69 targa we've deceided to go BIGGER. As in a 3.0SC longblock taken all the way down. 10.2 CR Mahles taken back to maybe 9.5 to 9.8, machined heads to go full MFI S spec. Kind of like a 3.0RS. It should have a little more grunt. We will use a different 69 901 transmission that is regeared, Wavetrac, aluminum intermediate plate, side plate. and internal bearing support. Visually it should look very much like the engine we just pulled out of the car.
    I'll probably try to list the engine and transmission on BAT. Hoping to get around 25K for the engine and transmission.

    I feel your choice to eliminate the bling colors on the suspension parts was a good one. Does not go with the 60/70’s theme.
    Incredible car….. about 15 years ago I built a 3.0 Carrera engine to 3.0 RS spec, using mag stacks. It really ran well. It was mentioned on this board at some point but I can’t find it.

    Rick,
    Thank you very much for the kind words. If anyone can find that thread I'd love to read it. When you post I pay particular interest in your comments. You've also listed some very cool 67 parts as well.
    I'm really excited to build this 3.0 RS ish engine. I think Doug (mister NevertoMany) the owner of the Targa will love it paired to a C, GA, O, V, ZD, 7:31, Wavetrac transmission. The 3.0 will have the torque to handle the longer geared transmission and run 3100 RPM at a nice touring speed of 80.
    As I haven't been to California for 2 years I've deceided to take the 2.4 engine and transmission to Pleasanton myself. Maybe a quick stop at Jerry Woods Enterprises, then down PCH to Carpinteria, then to Temeculla to see Dean Polopolus. Then back home.
    Thanks again for the comments.

    I went to inspect some exhaust and metal work on the 69 POLO car. I'm pleased with the results.

    Will do. Thank you. And I sure would like to see that yellow car in person myself... Possibly I'll see you around town.

    Damonís 911E shroud came. Very nice. I cleaned up the air filter. It was somewhat ruff. The 69 coupe body is starting to take shape.
