Nice very Nice. Are those piston rings Gapless by any chance or those their regular file fit? Those pistons are very nice man, you'll love those I promise.

Thank you. Truck isn't running yet, and before we rebuilt it the timing was wayyyyy retarded, so it wasn't really making any power. I doubt we will ever put it on a dyno though, I'm not really all that concerned with how much power it makes.

It runs! We started it up on Christmas eve for the first time. So far we have about 70 miles on it breaking it in. Most of the boost is dumped(all but 3-4psi) and we are using the stock injectors until the 42#ers come in. We also got the exhaust back on it so it doesn't sound so ridiculous, it sounds pretty mean open header though. Here are some pictures as of current:

That is f'ing awesome. I love the green, love the "supercharged", love it popping out of the hood, love the black SCer, love the stance of the truck and I love the exhaust setup out of the sides.

Is it for sale? lol
