    I broke four 208s tried with and without the rod,three of them the house cracked in two parts and one went bad inside I didn´t even open it and checked what was wrong.
    A couple of months ago I went cast iron 205 behind my 400 =bad ratio but will hold up fine.
    Two weeks ago I got a crack in the 400 just behind the oilpan:crazy:
    So now I´ll go with all cast iron and I don´t think I will need the doubler.
    This saturday I´m going to buy a 79 Blazer with 305 465:wink1: 205 in it .
    Haven´t decided if my axles and the engine from the m1008 will go into the Blazer or if the 465 will go into the m1008.
    Someone at our last gathering said a good thing:
    The only good thing aluminum is beercans:bow: :bow: :bow:

    E-town baby!
    You'll love the 465/205 behind the 6.2! I know I do...it'll crawl a tire up a tree at idle in first gear/low range. :bow:

    I'm replacing my 465/205 with a NV4500/203/205 in late July. I also have an aversion to aluminum when it comes to my truck. :D
