Link to my original thread is at the bottom.

So the car was overheating the first time I took it to WMHM because it didn't like getting whooped on so hard, and the head gasket kinda went. Was a little disappointing because there was only about 140k miles on that block/head when it gave up. So, the car sat in the back of my garage for a full year and it just kind of made me depressed to look at.

Finally got off my ass and started dealing with the z6 parts piled up in my garage, and got a spot to race in WHMH this year. Original plan (post-Gingerman) was a mild z6 build. That went out the window and I went 8/10ths retard on it, NA style. Primary is this guy:

I'm keeping the full interior and not doing a cage or anything, going for kind of a sleeper thing, although the lopey idle of that cam is gonna blow my cover. And maybe my tire choice. I'm about a week and a half from start up, waiting for the intake, TB, crank pulley and the motor mounts to get here on Tuesday. Starting to get excited, figured I should share since it's getting close...
