Talked to Butler today.  They are running a few weeks behind and estimating the end of November.

Just talked to Scott at Butler.  They are starting the machine work.  He said typically it takes about 3-4 weeks from here.

Today:

Block is machined & prepped, rotating assembly is balanced, heads have been CNCd awaiting assembly, and all parts have been pulled, cleaned, and painted if needed.

Ready for assembly


Seems like I've been waiting forever.

That's exactly what my best friend said .    ;D

It sounds like their final check process is pretty involved, and there is a line, so I'm probably still a couple 2-3 weeks from delivery.  He didn't tell me where I'm at in the queue but he said the guy that's in charge of that process will contact me next week and will send me a bunch of pictures so I can make sure everything is the way I want/expect it.

I'll get a thumb drive with videos of the dyno pulls when my paper work ships.
