Bump for update? All hopefully still well?

Good morning - a couple twists and turns but moving forward still. Brothers said they would feel better about warrantying their work with new pistons and jugs so I OK'd that.

Should be fully back together end of next week.

Thanks again for touching base, hope everyone is doing well.

Cool...
Just insure the "old" pistons and jugs go home with you, as they may very well be original EMPI (Mahle made IIRC) birals, I suspect worth serious coin in good shape, even used.
I'm curious why they didn't want to use the second best jugs ever made for T4s... (Nickies being ideal)
What did you go with?
