    It's a 350 4-bolt .040 over with 1991 350 TPI heads and TPI injection system that has all been freshined up. I used the painless wiring harness and had a custom chip burnt from www.jimsperformance.com it was the best price I could find for a chip. I'll fire the motor this weekend and let you know what problems if any. If you have thoughts please feel free to put in some input. Thanks

    Having an engine sure beats pushing the truck around on the trails.....

    That's MY thought.








    .....guess I don't understand the question?

    Personally I'd use some strong rope, and 18 healthy sled dogs to pull the truck. Just imagine how environmentally safer it would be! You get 5 miles to the gallon of water, and they'll fertilize the ground everywhere you drive! Bargain! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
