I am hoping for about 1 week now!!!!!

Sorry guys,

I know im prolly not welcome on here anymore, especially since i havent been here in 6or8 months now..... I just had to tell all about my motor.

I dont know how many of you know about what happened to my truck, but 10psi and 9.7-1 compression ratio doesnt work forever!!!!!! I yanked the heads and found two wasted valves and I could see the compression ring through the top of the piston(not good). Well I have spent just about all of my hard earned savings on it and this is what i have so far and hope its gonna be finished in a week or so.........................


Fully worked heads, larger valves, .500 .500 lift cams, crower dohc springs and retainers(good for 7800 rpms!!!!), .030 over forged 8.8-1 pistons, fully neutral balanced rotating assembly, stronger rods, all new and updated timing chain assemblies, arp head studs, .010 head savers, and the list goes on!!!!

I cannot wait to hear it a almost 8k rpms!!!!! If you want one let me know and I can assemble an almost replica for a fairly reasonable price(no fixed price until mine is finished)

If you want to talk more about it, my aim is kingsford59 and yim is pdpracing.

Lets all hope and pray for 450rwhp!!!!!!!!!
