I successfully finished my GMR Performance 98" 37G build ( with head work by Steve at GMR). I’d just like to say thanks to all who offered advice and assistance and answered my stupid questions, especially Steve at GMR Performance who guided me through this build. For the most part everything went smooth and I didn't run into anything unexpected, probably because I've spent so much time reading HD forums over the last several years and learning from all you experts.

I think the hardest parts of this build were removing the crossover on the gas tank and getting gas all over and in second place would be putting in the stinking circlips on the wrist pins without the proper tool. Other than that this was pure fun for me as I haven’t done any deep motor work in over 25 years.

Due to the weather I was only able to get 15 miles on it after the heat cycles but it seems to be running flawlessly. No more valve train noise than I had before and I honestly can't tell any difference in the sound of the geared cams from the chains.

I can't wait to get this broke in and dyno tuned so I can see what it will do. It's really hard taking it so easy when you can feel the extra power this has on the bottom end. The next several hundred miles are going to be rough.

Rick

P.S.
Hippo, I love the VPC, I highly recommend this product.

Put about 50 or 60 easy miles on it and whack the phuck out of it. Thats what I did to my 98" and I've got nearing 1500 miles on her with no oil leaks or anything bad. You really wanna feel that pig jump? Put the 3:37 on it!!

Funny you should mention that. I'm giving it serious consideration. I'll ride it like this for a while and then make the decision. I'll probably do it just for something to do.

I have some fears there. Lots of little things to do in my case.

I got a notebook in garage and write stuff down as it happens. Like put oil in tranny to order stripped bolts.

I hope mine is coming soon. Credit card called me to ask abut suspisous transactions. They were surprised when I had a charge out of state that wasn't porn.

I'm green with envy man. Steve should have my heads any day now as they were shipped on Monday from Toronto.
I'm doing the 98" with GMR stage one heads, 37g and BC Gerlomy bored throttle body. For tuning I'm the test pilot for the Terry components Terminal Velocity Unit. Having a real hard time with the waiting part!
