and then the knocking began and got worse and worse and worse so this is how i spent my sunday/fathers day

Congrats on the split port swap. Are you piecing together the swap yourself or through RPM, SuperSix or who?

i am awaiting on a 45* bend from the TB to the IC piping for the blower until that comes in and we figure out the piping issues i will be running the stock split port upper
ive got a dyno run the 7th of july but i wana put some milage on it befor hand with the stock intake
also for the most part i am doing it by my self my GF helped when i pulled the motor and when i was puttin the new block back together
but for the most parts its all me
i work on average 45HR a week and well in one week and 2days i have the old engine out the engine bay/trans and drive shaft tunnel and floor painted
