Fireball Upgrade Question
« on: February 19, 2015, 05:16:06 PM »
Most searches lead me to the Kneeslider where specific questions are steered away. Is it typical to crate up my engine & send it to TN. for the work to be done?

Ace (Tom) can probably address this better, but as I understand it, the head is sent to Tennessee for the porting and valvetrain work (and a bunch of other stuff) to be done at Mondello's. They are the best around for that sort of thing. The parts for the crank,piston/rod can be purchased and sent to you if you are building it up yourself. If you want the bottom end built for you, it is sent to Chumma in *I think* NJ but I could be mistaken, as far as location.
Shoot Ace a PM and he can help you out

Ah! a local East Texan, Thanks Doug, The top end, clutch & tranny I'd dive right into. The lower end on this 2002 Iron Barrel however is uncharted territory for me, with the O/P relief valve unknown & the upgrades...I'd say an experienced tech. familiar with the procedures may be in order. I thought I'd located an ACE site where I planned on askin some specific questions but, a pm may do, Thanks

Ace has a site on the Yahoo boards:

https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/AcePerformanceBullets/info

It's a little bit of an old-school format.

Basically, as noted, you can send the head and barrel to Tom in TN, and Chumma in NJ can do bottom-end work to match, along with the full build if you have Tom send the top end to him.
