Icon10 My 87

Here are some pics of my latest, (and ongoing) project... Its just a mildly "cammed" 302 right now, I'm in the process of fuel injecting, installing some trickflow twisted wedge heads and supercharging right now. What do you think so far?

All I gotta say is just WOW! It's great man. I think it needs just a little bit of drop, but not much. Just a couple inches but dangit, I'd love to own it. Looks perfect to terrorize the unsuspecting at stop lights and the occasional strip pass.

Thanks! Yeah, I'd like to lower it some more at least in the front... Its on my list of "to dos"!! haha Haven't decided exactly what I want to do with it... I'm not really going for the slammed look, but an inch or two would probably do a lot for the stance. I'm not a big fan of the twin I beams, and my concern is how to properly drop it without having camber issues or anything like that. Maybe someone who has done it will have some tips for me!?!!

Sick! Like said, slight drop (at at least in the front) and it would be near perfect.

Keep us updated on the engine mods!

Thanks for the kind words, guys! No, unfortunatly I haven't gotten it to the track yet... It was pretty late this season by the time I got it back on the road and I just ran out of time. I'm hoping 2010 will be a better year for racing anyways!!

Wow!! That is one sexy truck! Please post more pics of the rear end set up. I'm trying to figure out what to do with the rear end in my big block project. I want to run ladder bars and larger tires. What size are those tires? I also planned on ditching the leafs and cutting the bed to fit the tires, just like your truck! Awesome man, more pictures please!!

Thanks guys!! I'll see what other pics I have of the rear setup when I get off work. The suspension is mostly competition engineering, with the exception of some custom brackets I had to make for the front of the ladder bars to mount to and I made a "panhard bar" out of what was supposed to be a diagnal link. The tires are Nitto Drag 325/50r15's.
