    wow!! these guys just built ford small blocks and ran em for 1 minuite, in 20min 31sec!!! that was amazing!! i thought i was good my roommate and i could probably put a small block chevy together and make it run in under an hour but definetly not 20 min!! bobby labonte's engine guy/rear tire changer just won. dale earnhardt's guy beat him by 10 seconds but he left out a header bolt so he got a 1 minuite penalty.

    I started my engine last August /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif. Looks like she'll be done in a week or two.

    Did they use impacts or hand tools?

    I'm gonna have to guess impacts. I don't know if its possible to hand crank every bolt and finish in 20 minutes...

    nope no air tools what so ever. speed handles only. oh and everything had to be torqued to specific specs.
