Nice dude that's sick. What are you planning on doing to it before it goes in the truck? Other than the cam?

Fishy2k8 knew the guy with the motor and was willing to let it go for cheap! But not much planned besides cam.

Ran into some problems today. Studs for the exhaust manifold are bent on one side and on the other side others are cut halfway off. Tried to soak and torch them but had no luck. Luckily Fishy2k8 has spare 96 heads laying around that we might use.

Comp 410. Curious to see how well it does being a mild cam.


Ready for the swap.
