No I didnt assemble them, Super Six actually did all the short block work. The rods are profiled and balanced, but the discoloration is from where they pressed the wrist pins.

Thanx man, but I am ordering everything from Ford. There is little aftermarket stuff for this thing, so its just easier to deal with my local guy at the dealership, and my G/F works at a ford dealership too.

Do you know the horsepower and torque on this beast? Well the expected horsepower since im guessing it's never seen any kind of dyno without having any gaskets.
