    Brian, I think you got it backwards, you are the one raising the bar! I'm just trying to keep up.

    The motor plate is my attempt to prevent the engine torque from causing the block to 'wind up' end to end. I hope to stop the deck and main cap registers from distorting under max load. Should help cyl head sealing and cap walk. I dont see any down side other than the work to machine it.
    The plate goes down and picks up the bottom of the block behind the timing belt tensioner, also I bolted it to the block with counter sunk 45deg. socket head bolts so it is like welded to the block.
    The bell housing mid mounts are also solid now, should be a real vibrator............here are a couple better shots of the plate.

    Absolutely excellent work. Thank you for putting out a quality of fabrication tha gives me something to strive for. I have yet to see something you have created that hasn't made me want to get better.

    I sure hope so. I was sad to not see you there last year. If you don't make it I may have to drive home through North Dakota.

    Re: Laser XE coming back

    Just about done wiring the entire car. removed aprox. 48 lbs of factory wiring and unused components. My goal was light weight, easy maintainance, and no failures.
    Also I removed the alternator and changed to a 16 volt system. there are no accessory drive belts to fly off or rob power.
    So far Ive crimped and soldered about 300 terminals, WAY more work than I imagined it would be. Still have to wire up the factory digital dash.

    fired it up to check out the new big cam, It sounds VERY nasty, I free revved it a few time to see if the roller followers would fly out- so far all is well. If it runs as good as it sounds I will be having mucho fun. Cant wait to take it out on the street!
