Re: 77 Cheyenne meets Ramjet 350 by N2TRUX

Words can't even explain. This truck is fantastic. What I really love about this truck, and I admire others that are doing the same, is keeping the oem look to the truck. There are no fancy add-ons here. But with the newer era style rims, drop, and engine, it totally tops it all off! Incredible.

Yes. Everything was removed including the original factory seam sealer (the bed liner stuff). From what I remember, laquer thinner removes it w/o too much trouble.

Re: 77 Cheyenne meets Ramjet 350 by N2TRUX

Scoti is correct. The shop that did the install cleaned up the firewall so I'm not sure exactly what they used. In the past I have used lacquer thinner and even gasoline to remove the factory undercoating.

Yes, I know that was very dangerous, but it worked and I was determined to get it off.

Ken, your truck never ceases to amaze me. the attention to detail is absolutely unbelieveable. gives me a little inspiration for my own 77, but mine will be a little taller and a little more heavy duty.

Make it a point to set small goals every week for your truck. Don't look at the big picture unless you break down the small jobs too. For every major hurdle in your project, there are 10+ small obstacles. Find one or two that you can do each week, and you will be amazed at how fast things will move along.

BTW- Thanks for the compliments. Your truck is going to be far superior when it's done....
That´s what i did the last 13 years and your words describe it real good!
I strive for a result that is almost as cool as your truck and Cal58`s!

Re: 77 Cheyenne meets Ramjet 350 by N2TRUX

back when I was on here a lot, I really enjoyed seeing the progress of your truck on the "what did you get done?" threads... It has turned out to be a very stunning ride! I love how everything "flows" with this truck. Subtle changes that the "normal" crowd might miss, but has us "abby normel" folks drooling like Pavlov's dog. very well done!

MPG? Mmmm probably not too good since I don't drive it often and now that it's broke in I can't seem to keep my foot off the floor. Seriously, it does get better mileage than before but I haven't checked it.

I am very pleased with the entire set up. The Ramjet starts with a bump of the key and settles to a nice smooth but lumpy idle. Nothing serious, but you know it's not stock.

On the road it pulls well off the line and continues to pull hard until 3rd gear. It goes a little flat there, but that to be expected considering I still have the 3.08 gears. A set of 3.42's would be just about perfect, and 3.73's would make it a tire shredding screamer.

If I had a reason to change gears I would probably go with 3.42's and enjoy great performance as well as good mileage. Since everything works, I'll stick with what I have for now.

The only problem I have experienced is on occasion when I have to get off the gas and on the brakes quickly, the motor dies. This makes for a fun little surprise if you are in need of doing something like stopping fast or turning quickly. If you put it neutral and bump the key it comes right back to life.

I "think" this could be caused by the converter not unlocking quick enough, but it's hard to pin down since it doesn't happen on a consistent basis. This will be something to work out over the Winter.

Thanks to everyone for the compliments.....

I am new to the site, just found it a few days ago while on Porterbuilts web site.

Ken, I got to see your truck in person back in 05 or 06 at a show in Fredericksburg, TX at Lady Bird Johnson Park. It was still the detailed stock motor, but a fantastic truck. I got to say, now it is way better...

I hope to see it in person again now that you have made these changes..

That was the Street Machine Mini Nationals. Man I miss that show. Unfortunately that was the 1st year it was moved from Waco, and the last year it ran.

Thanks for the compliments. I hope to have it at a few shows around Texas this coming Spring.

All baseball hats, derby hats, pimp hats and cowboy hats off to you and Stoked Out. It’s that kind of passion, determination, creativeness that keeps the Classic Trucks and Truckin magazines off the shelf and gives us classic truck owners drive to finish what we started. Thanks for sharing N2Trucks, we all need inspiration and the thousand words from your photos.
