    Had the motor dyno'd today. Started out with a baseline of 390hp, and 469 ftlbs.

    At the end of the tuning session, had 448hp @5400, and 503 ft lbs @4100. Had about 2000 RPM worth of 460+ ft lbs. I have a feeling this motor is going to pull like a freight train in the truck...if I can keep traction.

    I have a sheet (though not currently on my computer) and I should be getting an email (of the same) as well as a link to a video of a pull on you tube. The guy was really cool about the whole thing, definitely had a good time spinning it. I'll add a link/picture when that happens.

    All in all, not bad for a 468 big block chevy on a budget, with pump gas and 8.5:1 compression.
    Precision is only as important as the project...if you're building a rocket ship...1/64" would matter. If you're building a sledgehammer...an 1/8" probably wont.

    One project leads to another it seems...in needing to work on my truck, I ended up building the guy that runs the shop a bumper for his 92 Bronco.

    I just finished mounting it to the frame the other day, still need to mount the fairlead and the skid plate.

    My project is getting wiring at the moment...slowly but surely.

    Here's a picture of the engine set up on the dyno though. I still havent scanned the dyno sheet in.

    Pictures are in the following order:

    Modified piece of 3x3 1/4" tube to slip into the frame rail, and mount bumper.

    A picture that shows how sturdy this **** thing should be

    I built it out of 1/4" plate, and 1.5" sq x .125 wall.

    That should be a really sweet engine when you get it in the car, looks awesome on the stand.

    As promised, a few more pictures of my old chevy.

    I just put the front end parts on the other day...waiting for more stuff, like springs and such. Hope to have the engine/trans in it by the end of this weekend. As soon as I have a video of the engine running, either in or out of the truck, I'll try to link to that as well.
