Re: New Engine 496 BBC Vortecpro

Very nice Juan, thanks for the nice comments! Looking forward to your results, and I think Chris Straub deserves some credit here as well, he made sure I had the parts and I might add the right parts.


I can't tell you how much I like seeing people from other countries enjoying our hobby, especially when they run a big block Chevy in a Chevelle with a small tire NA!

Re: New Engine 496 BBC Vortecpro

When shipping from Colorado to Panama, does the motor eventually end up on a ship....and presumably go through The Canal?

This one we ship it through air , but yes if will come in a ship it could go two ways if the way is out usa is miami , it will arrive to colon in the atlantic ocean if the way out is L.A it will arrive Balboa at the pacific ocean.
It is a 60 minutes drive from pacific to atlantic in Panama so we dont have to wait to the ship pass the canal that takes longer.

Re: New Engine 496 BBC Vortecpro

I remember getting a box like that from Mark nearly 2 yrs. ago but it was "only" his 467 engine. Oh what fun it has been to play with that one! First rate engine, first rate packaging, and more than first rate person. Seems that more and more are finding that out lately. I thank this board for getting the word out about Mark and his work. That's how I found out about it. Never been happier!
