    [QUOTE=Croc;116911]15 min response testing at Newark airport, you go past it on I-95/Jersey Turnpike. Google Xprescheck and see what time slots they offer. Terminal B, level 3 before security. THis is the one I use if I need testing.

    Thinking about this: Do you know if it would be doable while trailering a Seven?

    Not sure to be honest. There is room in the parking lot for trailers - go in the terminal B entry and you do not have to go through the multi story garage. I assume the parking gate will stay up long enough for a trailer?

    Probably should see if the newark airport website has any guidance re parking trailers.

    Actually before you even do that I would see if they have availability when you want - it’s not always available since it is pretty popular.

    I still don't have my engine back from my builder in CA
    So I'm not going to make this one.

    Have fun and stay safe!

    Best to all,

    John

    We will miss you John. You may want to make a call to the builder and tell him to find another 50-60 more HP. If you want to keep up with Croc’s new beast next year.

    I just got up to speed. Your new car sounds awesome Croc!
    One thing, and I'm speaking from experience here, make sure you use a forged or billet crank! You'll have to have it custom made. That's basically the same engine I had in my Cat when we blew it up last year but engine builder figured a cast 2.5L crank from a Ford Ranger pickup would be ok because it's a street car. - NOT!

    How was the event? I need posts and pics

    Not a problem - I thought engine spec long and hard and went with an engine builder who knows what they are doing with these engines and has a track record I can verify independently.

    Nothing wrong with a cast crank but you have to keep the revs down in the 2.3/2.5 environment. I have similar power to you in my 2.3L with the cast crank and I usually change at 6500 for a 7000rpm self imposed limit. Tom has a billet crank and he can go high above 8000rpm.

    You may have found them already but event posts and pics here - we missed you!

    while that is true, I have found that I don’t have the need or balls to go that high. When it was dynoed a couple of years ago they took it up pretty high. It was still pulling when they backed off at around 8600.

    it’s got plenty of torque and pulls like the truck engine it is. I’m enjoying it being the top dog and I will obviously be handing over that crown to Croc when his arrives at the track next spring. I’m sure Bruce will come back to NJMP next year to deliver it

    we need a new driving emoji for Croc and I that uses paddle shifters

    Tom.
