Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

Looks like some plumbing workarounds ahead for you? Headers look good, real good!

My guy got mine rough fitted on the passenger side last week but my motor likes 28" 2-1/4 x 2-3/8 primaries with a slip on 4-1/2" high velocity merge collector, so not long enough to make it under the cab, had to angle them down and out, don't look nowhere as nice as yours lol, but should make power.

Sure like the looks of them tucked under more like yours but engine builder said would have to give up a bit of power and I didn't want to give any up, already giving up some with the block. Not sure I'll even build an exhaust for off the track this time, never street drive it anymore anyway.

Thanks was happy with results. I have always really liked your truck and would be great to come see it at the track soon.

Brought me a shiny new water pump. Told a buddy I'm out of the 80's now. No more external pump drive.[IMG][/IMG]

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

Thanks Guys. I'm pecking away at it. I dropped the headers off to be coated Tuesday. I will have them back in a couple weeks. Hopefully it will start coming together pretty soon. I'm tired of it being scattered all over the shop.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

I really like that black coating instead of the shiny silver most people do.

I think I remember that pic or one similar back at the start of the thread, tool box and all lol.

My headers are done, anti roll done, modified 4-link cross member and new larger CM link bars done, new CM trans crossmember done, new CM tubular shaft loop done, mid plate done, truck is moving to a shop with a bender on Sunday and the old roll bar is coming out and new cage going in. Then mount up the chute and a set of wheelie bars for it.

A guy is going to use my bumpers and make me a pair of glass ones that I'm having wrapped with chrome 3M, and make a new lexan back window. After that bring it home and have a crap load of little things to do. Hopefully my trans and convertor will be here by then.

Motor is done and sitting on the dyno ready to fire, going on Monday to break it in and dyno it, then bring it home.

If you look at the Frank guys post on that page there is a picture of it sitting in the dyno room all lonely and waiting LOL.

I was debating going black on mine vs silver, other option I like is the more flat or semigloss silver not the shiny.

Sounds good. FYI Shakedown racing products has a front bumper. It was molded off of mine. I guess it might be cheaper for you to do local though.

Karl they were done by D&K Coatings in Marshall Tx. For some reason they cant do the chrome like coating anymore. I like it because they dont take away from the motor.
