I just wanted to give notice that we had another participant withdraw from traditional muscle and another withdraw from vintage.
As it now stands the vintage class has been reduced by 2.
With the latest drop from traditional Muscle there have been 2 alternates placed in the field of 16.
1.Survival Motorsports
2. Red Rocket

Heads up Randy.. your the next alternate up.
Hope that Ford is up & ready to go.

Heads are finished, short block together minus cam that got ground wrong, and working on my intake all weekend for effort #1. Tail end and just cosmetic things left. Hope everyone enjoys the appearance of this one! 8)

Effort #2 heads are nearly finished as I type this and working on the camshaft specs after I analyze the flow info. High gear to get it completed.

Typical burning of the candle at both ends!

For some reason ... things must have changed.

To my Speed talk EMC Followers
There are 4 positions that are not posted in the list at
http://www.hotrod.com/articles/2017-ams ... -announced
They are 4 very important positions.
It was a tough decision,
but these 4 were chosen from a very good field of applicants.
They stood out because of their past support and their dedication to the
AMS Oil Engine Masters Challenge
The Traditional Muscle Alternates are:
1. Survival Motorsports Barry Rabotnick
2. Total Performance Randy Malik
3. Red Rocket Engine Daniel Boshears
4. Kustom Kemps Lynn Peterson
They have the job of filling in for any one that can not make the competition in October.
Congratulations and good luck to everyone.
See you at AMS Oil EMC in October
Here is your list Adger; posted by you.

Yep, that is what I sent in and I only posted what corporate sent back.
Someone with a higher pay grade tells me what to do.

Randy,
Attached is the e-mail I sent the boss.
Guess he made a management decision.

Oh well ... This engine was finished 2 years ago. Changing head gaskets and an intake manifold doesn't take very long.

Talking today with the guy who does the major fabricating for me: He needs a month to get me a finished Sheet Metal tunnel ram for my "POLY" engine. I am still waiting for other parts so, that will be impossible. ](*,)

I bought an aluminum single 4 barrel, 2 plane manifold today and it is on the way ... $150.00 shipping & handling charge for sending this aluminum manifold; on top of the charge of $615.00 intake manifold price. :roll:

At least it is less expensive than that sheet metal tunnel ram would have been. :-k

Is that the Super Pac Poly manifold that came out recently? If so I have tested with it. J.Rob

Let's all pray for our good friends at SAM in Houston. I know many of their homes are flooded and not sure about the school. I don't think that the EMC is a top priority for them right now but I hope they find a way to come and compete. I have really enjoyed my time with Judson and his guys. Kaase

YES ... Chrysler Power is calling it their SS-X manifold.

All those people down in southeastern Texas have a hardship that I can't even begin to imagine. I sure hope they get through it all with as little demolition as possible.

We're down in Victory Tx. working the harvey Storm. Told us we are not going to Houston. Think we may be heading to Corpus Christi in a couple of days. Hope the EMC builds are coming along, hate we are not going this year. Best of luck to everyone.. Joe C

Joe,
Glad to hear you AEP linemen are on the job. I just got notification that one of our EMC participants has been flooded out and will not make it.
Such a tragedy for so many people.
Be careful and God bless you and the others on the rescue and repair crews.

It is now official.
The Randy Malik EMC drama is over.
I have just received notification from the Hot Rod Corp office.
As alternate #3 Performance Specialists has been added to the run order to replace another team that has withdrawn.
Congratulations Randy!
Looking forward to seeing all 3 of your teams at EMC.
