    My 2.8 is bored .030 over, new pistons, has forged crank and connecting rods, a mild cam, high perf. oil pump and I'm saving up to get the edelbrock 4 bbl intake and a 500 cfm carb. I was thinking of custom making a set of headers since nobody makes them for this application but the manifolds aren't too bad of a design. The next step is to see if I can blow it to pieces w/ juice since it rev's up to 6 grand no problem and holds 65 pounds of oil pressure while it's there. :laugh: It is a guttless turd however and the only way to make it move is to put it in something light with a standard transmission.
