    once again I got shitty at updates lol the exciting parts are hard to take pictures of. its alive and well! sounds nasty too. I couldn't be happier how it turned out so far. ive only drove it about a mile so far, the dipstick tube was rusted out so it doesn't have one at the moment. I put a cap off a diff fluid bottle in there to plug it. my dipstick will be in at the dealer in the morning. I will update with how it runs, seems to run very well for the little ive drove it. it does want to die when you come to a stop with this cam, the tune will need touched up sooner than later. I still need to get the ac relocation kit on and tidy up the wiring, I need a junk yard trip to get the fuse box holder so I can mount it and the pcm and get the wiring for the fuel pum relay and key on power finalized as well. updates will slow down now but still be coming! ill be posting a link to a video and some pictures soon!

    A little more driving and the idle learn / fuel trims might help with how it runs. That said I would definitely get it tuned still.

    just talked to my tuner today for pricing on a dyno tune, will be doing that soon, truck has to be fully warmed up to stop stalling at stops. once up to operating temp its fine. the cold start is epic, sounds soo nasty. my neighbor just asked my wife today if I was over here building a hot rod lol did my first oil change today at about 66 miles. oil looked great and there was very very little wear metal on the drain plug magnate. very happy to see that, running Pennzoil sae 5w30 right now and am going to change it out to amsoil in 3k miles. truck still running great and am very happy with how its performing. ive been easy on it so far and will be till the next oil change in 3k miles. got a few parts on order, new headlights and markers, triple piller pod, glow shift boost, trans temp and afr gauge, led head light bulbs, cab lights, led cab light bulbs. next will be a hd2 kit and some body work/finish painting the frame. I need to do a fuel level sensor at some point soon too. wanna talk about gauge float..... heres a video of the truck running its first night I got it going, carrying my 3 year old in my arm while taking the video :)

    for any body wondering, I ended up at 10.56:1 compression, 61cc head, .040 compressed gasket, quench height of .040 due to my combo ending up at 0 deck clearance and a gasket bore of 4.10. didn't want to go that big but that's all they had in stock.
