Yeah that's at the Silver Lake Sand Dunes..

Well the hood needs to be wheeled out today - and tomorrow we are busy, so it looks like we are going to pick it up on Wednesday.

Well we've had the truck for a couple weeks and lemme tell ya, its a BEAST. With almost 500 HP on tap, this thing accelerates IN OVERDRIVE, going UP A HILL, while TOWING the trailer. Its just insane.

Anyway, here are the finished pics







Dyno Vid!!!!!

If you ever need any info on the motor. Just PM me. I know a little too much about gen 2 lightnings. (My 02 L is pushing 800hp now)

About the only thing I'd suggest if he's not already addressed it. Is a L&S oil seperator.

This is the only dyno sheet we have.



With the transfer case + tires & gears, a 25% drivetrain loss is expected. Figuring that, it is right around 475hp and 585lb-ft of tq. at the crank. After its broken in he'll be in for one last tune.
