    Sweet!

    Two quick questions... How much total lift are you running to clear those Boggers? Is that monster red or hugger orange?

    Thanx Burt, i did the same thing, but was running in circles also, I did have some neighbors lookin at me with some pretty strange looks. As far as Motor Mounts, they are the same as what was on the 350, 3 bolt mount with 1 thru the middle poly urethane. I was really surprised at how little the mounts let the motor move. I anticipated some serious movement with the torque the motor is throwin out. I am running 8 inch susp. lift w/ 3 inch body. I still have to do a little trimmin if i want to keep the tires out of the fenders, and as far as the color, it is a red, but someday will be a nice shade of chevy orange. I noticed in one of the pics the flash gave a definite "orange" look to it though. The motor run me about twice as much as the jimmy did, and almost got run out of the house by the wife when she found out how much i paid, lmao. And i am kickin myself in the butt for not havin the camcorder ready when i fired it for the first time w/ open headers, it was something else hearing that rumble for the first time!!!! thanx for the positive comments!!!! see u guys at BB02!!!!!!

    Yowsa! Break it in really nice. Make sure that oil gets up into the rings to cool them off and so that the oil doesn't coke up in the ring area and gall the bores.
