Its Alive!!!!!!!

As of Thursday night the truck is running!!!!!!!!!! I have been working on the driveability all weekend on it... So far, I can drive about 80 miles on a half tank of fuel... Not too worried about the mileage, just as long as it runs good. Zach uploaded a vid of the exhaust, but it hasnt worked for me... This thing has some serious torque fellers!!! I will keep you all updated. 170 miles on the new engine so far!!!

80 miles on a half tank? That's like 10 mpg... lol.

Any ideas on the numbers it's putting out?

The gas mileage will get better for ya as you break the engine in. Its just like with any new car everything has to seat in. Sounds very nice too.
