Look what's on my desk, 3.7 ARP STUD sex!

Got in my ARP studs, figured out what all the fuss was about, pm me if you want a deal.

What else is on my desk? I see one of Land To Sea's NOS distribution blocks,a broken EZ UP tent part, an aluminum muffler end piece (WHAT?), hmm guess that's all the camera picked up..

Ive said it before and Ill say it again, I'd love to build my motor before I blow it up, but I want someone to lay it all out and there to be a blueprint to follow. I dont want uncertainty and lots of $$$ flushed down the drain.

Problem is there are so few being built no one wants to jump on board, you can have pistons in 20 days, rods, well only Manley stepped up to the plate and only thru MMR and they have to buy ten sets at a time, they are being cautious and pre-selling most of the order before it is place so you get the wait time.

I am just stuck waiting for my local guys, they are holding me up from designing my intake...

Keep an eye out that the shank doesn't bottom out on the deck surface before getting full thread engagement. I've had to chamfer the bolt holes in a deck before. Maybe the stock block bolt holes already are but just a heads up on something to look out for. A bolt is supposed to stretch at the shank, not the thread is why you do this.

Have you spoken to anyone that has a living built motor??? I hate to see you like everyone else and kill it 500 miles later. Has anyone gotten one of these to stay together?

It seems these 3.7 are Govt. issued Top Secret, I think I have been the most forthcoming with what happened to my engine, why I think it happened and what can hopefully be done about it while talking in common guy talk. That being said I am also doing some secret pretty cool stuff, if it works I'll tell you about it, Land (Chris) got to see one of the items last night and wanted them bad, I forgot to have him frisked before he left last night so hopefully they are still in the shop .

My engine builder is one of the best in the Mod / Coyote world, he states that this engine reminds him of a Coyote JR. we have talked to Dan Millen at Livernois, Manley, Ferrara, ARP and MMR about what they are using and what advice they can give. My engine build is pretty straight forward, it's a std bore new block with performance hone to get proper cylinder clearance. The rings will be gapped correctly and are designed for what we are doing as are the forged pistons and rods. We are looking at upgrading the valve spring pressure to compensate for the boost and finally I am working with some people in regards to an intake redesign. I think I am in good hands, as far as other builds going wrong, I know Solo posted that he had a pin shear that caused piston to valve issues, what caused that I don't know for sure, I heard a few things but I don't know the facts. Not sure of anyone elses build so????

You and supersixmotorsports have definitely been the most forthcoming with tech information, and I for one surely appreciate it. MMR and NPG also seem to have a lot of valuable knowledge on these engines, but understandably they do a pretty solid job of keeping details under wraps until they're ready to make a move. I wish there was a mutually beneficial business arrangement that could be found in order to make availability of parts better, but I don't see any way of that happening. Fortunately I think this is a platform with incredible potential, and the kinks will be worth working out.

Kerr have you looked into a harder steel for the cam pins? like a tool hardened steel or tungsten carbide?since there was a possible failure there.

It's on my discuss list for sure. As are oil pump gears.

Back when I had a couple friends running FFW Street Warrior class my friend Steve built a Vertigate shifter for a T5 (it was bad ass) problem was the pins would shear that held the thing together a couple night before a race we ended up with drill bits in the lathe cutting grooves for e clips, hardened drill bits saved the day.

I know the pins are a press fit how hard would it be to just make it threaded that way if there are issues you can remove it and replace like saying for wear issues of if it gets bent and needs a quick change.
