OPeration ThunderCat officially underway

I officially started on the BigCat's build today with the help of my apprentice Annabelle and another buddy to get the motor pulled. after a few busted knuckles and a little tech advice from BGMAGMA and TYLERZX10R We got her dropped.

Will report back later on as things develop, but its gonna be a goodun!

EDIT: figured id toss up the project cost for those in the future wondering what it would take to do a similar build.

Springs 150ish
Gen 1 Head 140
Custom cometic thin HG 90
Head port 1000
Cams 1100 for hardweld and hard chrome custom cut profiles
Pistons 700
Rebore 700
Rods w/upgraded bolts 1200ish
Crank 1200
High pressure relief valve 80
Full exhaust 1200
Isotropic Transmission job 250 (from friend)
Arp studs 90 (from friend)
Ignition Module (269)


Total: $8,166

I think thats total what ive spent so far. Some people say why not buy a new bike, well bec I love the BigCat so ill just make it new again

Edit: dynoed today 5-31-14 made 197.32 in a single pull with 94.54ftlbs torque. On a pull through all 6 gears it made 200 in 2-3 and 201.38 in 4th.
