The AS41 Engine Build

This new AS41 universal case ended up being purchased on sale at Mid America Motorworks on the spur of the moment in 2018, If I had been in the right frame of mind I would have just bought a case bored for 94mm and clearanced for stroker crankshafts.  However, I ended up just getting a stock 85mm case.

I had no real plan for this case prior to April 14, 2019 when I decided to stop using the 45 year old AH case for me new build and shift to this brand new 0 mile case. Everything else I had bought was pretty much brand new, so why not just use this case instead.

So everything, regardless of state of completion, has shifted to this new case.
