What kind of numbers do you expect the engine to be putting out after you finish building the motor? Will it be getting the full treatment that your truck has?

And do you have the EE supercharger as well? I can't remember if you do or don't.

It will see well over 300hp. We arent going full bore like my truck, but it should be pretty nice. I do have the EE SC.

Nick,

I remember you mentioning that the fuel economy on your truck was into the single digits, is that still an issue?

Nah, its not too bad. IF, and I say IF, I am easy on it, I can get up to 17mpg on the hwy. Although, I can actually watch the fuel needle drop if I am running it on up in the rpms!!!

Would you PM me a brief list of the word done to your engine and a rough estimate of the power it's making? Odds are I wouldn't know what half the parts you replaced are... but I'm curious and I understand why you wouldn't want to put 'em out for the whole world to see.

You can look on my website and see everything that I have done to it. I really dont wanna spill anything on the hp numbers until i finish EVERYTHING... that could take a while too!

Hey Nick, are you running Super Six's new rods? I am thinking about ordering a set when I go back into the engine to put in the new coated bearings and pistons that finally got back from the machine shop.

Nope, they came out after my motor was finished. I couldnt justify spending 1200 bucks on the rods and having to buy another set of 750 dollar pistons, right after break-in period on my motor... Besides, I am only twisting it up to 7,500 rpms.

Wasted. Hows the whole reciprocating assembly? Doesn't look good with oil making it all the way back to the MAF and those plugs..

Engine even going to make it into ' core ' status?
