    Go to my webshots, all pics in truck are crap, wiring isnt near finished, those are not my spark plug wires, and all those loose wires will be in loom. Its fully roller 496, hydraulic roller cam (crane pn 139721). Port and polished 049 heads w/ 2.19/1.88valves. Forged steel H beam rods, forged steel crank,mini-dome pistons, Edelbrock MPFI conversion. Desktop dyno is saying 523hp at 5500rpm, and 577tq at 4000rpm, has 504tq at 2000rpm.
