    Last night I got my intake installed and this morning I got everything replumbed. A buddy came by later this morning and helped me get the truck timed and the rockers adjusted. We took it for a spin and the 454 really gets moving

    Sounds so much better now that all cylinders are firing!

    Later this afternoon I got the grill installed which really looks nice. Need to adjust the driver side fender a bit.

    Grill makes the truck look so much closer to finished! :bow:

    Now it's time for some pizza and beer :D

    Finally, here is a sound clip, gear drive sounds much louder on the recording rather than in person Audio Clip

    Thanks for the compliments!

    Went and washed it today and my youngest wanted to go - can't beat that!

    The gas tank holds about 40ish gallons, ya know, to get me 20 miles. :crazy:

    Yep, the power is so much better than the tired 307.

    I changed the pics above to ones after it was washed - definitely slices through the air better clean :haha:

    I have an Olympus Camedia camera. I take the video and then use a shareware program that will take it to avi or mp3 or a couple other formats. It is a very easy program. I can e-mail it to you if you pm me. I'm just getting ready to jump to your post about starting your bbc swap. Hope to read it is going well.
