    Hey all, just wanted to drop a line and let you know I am still amoung the living...I have been moving to a new, larger house and can not afford internet right now, so we are using the computers at the local liberary for awhile..:doah:

    I did get some work done on my suburban, had to replace the clutch and exhust system all in one week! yikes! Blew the pressure plate to peices playing in the mud on night, and getting her unstuck, managed to rip the exhust off.....very expensive night! got the new clutch installed at a local tranny shop and then off to the muffler shop for a new 2.5" single into duel exhust (SUPER V muffler) SHE SOUNDS MEAN NOW! now if only her performance matched her sound...soon. Next thing I am doing to her is a Cam swap, Intake, and carb... going to use a summit cam (sum1106) a summit intake (summit stage two) and a Edelbrock carb (650cfm). Acourding to the guys at summit, should be good for about 325HP and 350 torque, work for me as the stock 350 in my truck was rated at 195hp!:doah:

    Any way, thats what is up with me right now, I will post in as I can, and hopefully we will get internet at the house soon.:D

    dont want to pop your bubble but 325hp from cam intake and that carb is not to good a chance. but you will get some power added yas.

    Yeah, after some more research I have found a friend who has a 454 builder I can have for $250.00 so I might do that instead.....350-400hp and 400torque alot easier with a big block:bow: so that may be the way to go...got to do some thinking on this one:doah:
