Thanks again all of you for the thoughtful replies. I'll keep you all updated on my youtube channel westcoast wrenchin. The block is going to the machine shop next week!

For whomever is looking, boost is a sickness. You'll never have enough, its just so easy to add it, you'll want to keep adding. So plan ahead.
