    Building up my 407 /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    Pocket porting the heads. Trying to decide if I should run the energizer 260 or the 266. I like the Comp cams, but for the money and the extra 5HP I can't justify the extra $60 for their cam.

    I also need to reprogram my Howell (7730) TBI for the Big Block Beast. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    I also need to find some headers (coated preferred) and get them to accept the O2 sensor.

    Then install it and drive it again... damn, I miss that thing.

    1. Replacing springs and shocks. The springs are factory and are all worn out.

    2. Fixing the wiring to the driver's side PL.

    3. Finding that pesky vacuum leak....... /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    Other than that the truck's doing fine. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I just retired the /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif for daily driving so I am planning on pulling out the 454 & rebuilding it with a 496 stroker kit. I am also going to put more lift possible 10 or 12 inch fronts with a shackle flip rear & bigger tires.
