Next I'm waiting on engine parts... which most of em can be sent back it's all still kinda up int he air on that. Once that gets more solid, should be sometime soon, then I can share the plan with the tranmission guy who would make me one able to handle the engine and slightly more as wel have someone else do a warrantied converter. Also.. I need to replace the axles and get a new pumpkin posi that's more up to date. Should be good then but the general idea is around 400-500 on the engine itself and 750+ output with a pro charger. Which will be tweakable so it wouldn't always give an excessive amount. That way I'd still be able to drive it.... I hope

Lets see... decided to go with a more expensive but lighter choice of an aluminum block and building up a stroker engine from that. Eventually I'll have it all figured out but it's going to be a couple months maybe before even all the parts get there. So yeah, not much going on at the moment.

You can't see it in the video but they left finger prints on a lot of the paint job. So eventually when I have time I need to take it back and have them touch up the fenders, hood and doors. Sheesh... had my truck gutted out for a month and then left finger prints on the paint job. :O I was pretty mad... and they said they'd put the lights on for me but did a shoddy job of that too, the corner lights weren't even fully wired and then the rest was all bare wires just twisted together. :S *sigh* fried my stereo too. Broke pins on my amp for the door speakers. Good thing I had warranty on that. :D Now I also got a breaker on my stereo line so no more stupid fuses.

EDIT: er WITH not from the procharger lol... Hope that makes more sense.

Wow! I'd go somewhere else! If they messed up that bad, I'd probably never go back.
