Job # 2175 (HR) - 4.7 E Type
Stage Two stroker rebuild for a client in Dubai

 Update report - October 22, 2016
We have now run your engine through several heat cycles on the engine stand and everything has checked out perfectly. I will post a short video for you next week!

This is your actual Weber set-up
Headers and other ancillaries are slave items for
use with our engine test stand

Several heat cycles have already been performed
Look for a short video of the engine running
next week

We have now wrapped up the assembly of this Stage Two 4.7L rebuild and we will be running the engine on the test stand in the next few days.

With all of the machine work completed, we have been gathering all the new and restored parts ready for final assembly.
