I just have one other buggy to wire this winter, and it is a carbed system should only take part of a weekend. I have been working on my shop, building a new room to house the lathe and a couple of mills. I hope to be able to actually start making some of the parts that are currently only in my head and poor drawings. :oops: :roll: .

I might be able to use another set of turbo flanges if you get to making them..........

I have finally got back to working on my build, I ran 1 trip last season NA and it is definitely time for some boost. If it stops snowing I wont have to work tomorrow, then I will post a few pics.

Well with all of the poor reports I have heard on the DRD heads I decided to inspect mine. These heads have only 5 hours run time and all 4 intake seats are leaking as well as the exhaust guides. Going to send them to Brothers for a full rebuild, hopefully they can fix them.

I received my heads back from Brothers today, they needed all new guides, new springs, all 4 intake valves and decked. Hopefully they are now ready for use. I will inspect, CC and clean them tomorrow evening and prep them for install.

Yes it sucks, but I am moving on. The thing that bothers me the most is encouraging Art and others to buy DRD heads. I have learned a lesson from this experience and hope that others can learn from my mistakes. I cant wait to get my buggy boosted again and go play.

Well I'm sure everyone knows it was with the best intentions. And I always thought they had a pretty good reputation.

No, I just try to keep the equipment running so the drivers can plow.
