    That's a lot of miles for 6 days! Did you plan & book your stops ahead of time, or just sleep in whatever town you ended up in? I ask because I've approached a few trips both ways.
    I don't know what the terrain is like between Montana and Washington, I assume plains and then mountains. What notable stops are inland there?

        Going down the coast for me we had towns picked out and hotels booked. But Bozeman to Seattle is about 11 hours and had done that many times so no stops there this trip. Western Montana and the bit of Idaho were all mountains. Eastern Washington is mostly arid land until you get closer to the Cascades then mountains again. Have done Maryland to Montana twice and that was drive as far as possible, once late in the day, Google an upcoming town with a hotel to stop in. Some interesting tourist road side attractions along the way just long enough to get cash, food, and to stretch.

                If ya stay on 90 at the SD/WY border, there's a really good sub sandwich shop in Buffalo Wyoming haha. Use to always stop there as a half way spot for Bozeman to Denver. Also your path on 212 will give you "if I break down, I live here now" vibes.

                  It is indeed!

                  Unsure if updated: Sold the EM1. It was fun, but did a little better than break even, went to a good home, my friend the previous owner to me has access to buy it back some day if the new owner ever decides to, so good news all around.

                  Time to refocus on the touring.

                        It's a client. I built the head. It has a 4.27 and redline is 8500rpm with 245/45. Theoretical top speed is 158.

                        Should be close. Our old race car was clocked at 147 with 205/50 4.10 at 7200rpm.

                            Thanks. It really is a thankless job. Most of my clients don't want published information in their car. This fellow was making 208whp/198wtq four years ago. The head came back in late 2020 for some updates. No new Dyno numbers, but that's a 2.8l z3 he is gaining on for comparison. EP Class, SCCA.

                                EP class is up to .5" valve lift, valves must be stock diameter, throttle body, intake manifold, crankshaft must be stock. Exhaust and ECU are open, 12:1 max compression. I flowed a stack of stock heads and picked the best one - no porting allowed, but we were able to get more flow just in the valve job and using SuperTech valves with the 6mm stems.
