Oh yes, here are specifics on my build. My goal is a street strip deal.
Motor is 355 out of a 96 pickup, its got flattop pistons, 10:1 CR, hyd roller [email protected] 108lca, 1.6 roller rockerarms, rpm knockoff maniflod portmatched, ported vortec heads and doublepumper 650 with Chokehorn removed, shafts narrowed and knifeedged should flow 700ish

Trans has a performance rebuild kit, full manual valve body and 4000stall converter and Hurst quarterstick shifter

Rear is a junkyard 9" narrowed with strange 31spline axles, trutrac lsd and 4.30 gears.

Oh and i boxed the LCAs with New Moog brushings, Bilstein shocks in the back and 275/60r15 tires

What are your thoughts on my setup?
