    Finished painting the exhaust and waxed the car. Seemed like a nice day to take a few pictures.

    Well, looks like I have a blown head gasket. Cancelled the track event this weekend and the car is already getting worked on. Replacement parts include: VAC multilayer head gasket and supersprint titanium valve springs. The head is also being sent to a machine shop.

    Yeah, it should be back up and running next week. They get things done pretty quickly over there. Might throw some cams in too.

    Yeah, for sure. It runs really strong though. I'm going to check out the internals tomorrow.

    If anyone sees a set of schrick cams for sale, please let me know! I saw the supertech springs today, they should be a good match with the schrick cams. That combination would allow me to bump the rev limiter up to 7200rpm.

    Anything else I should look at doing while the head is off? I will definitely be needing a tune from Jordan after this.

    Depends on how much you want to spend. You should refresh everything. New guides, retainers, and valves. Also timing chain tensioners.
