    Well I just paid a 500 dollar bill today so the stroker kit will need to wait a few weeks. But I do have a cobra oil pump/pickup and main studs and balancer bolt heading my way

    Re: Ranthemans! Build Thread!!!---motor is out!!!

    Alright I beleive I have found my problem. don't buy speed pro pistions for a modular motor. there is play in the piston and rod pin on all of them like a little too much enough were I would believe a good nock would accure. so never using them again other than that bearings looked good but anyways I am going to order either my head studs water pump or headers. I still don't have enough to buy the stroker yet. I have a pretty good Idea what my hp is going to be at the wheels this guy has what I have and is running at 320rwhp except I have the folowing differences

    he has 24lb injectors no maf upgrade and no ignition upgrade and no fluid dampner

    i am at a lower sea level so with right tuning I might see 330rwhp maybe more we will see and this is all n/a

    Re: Ranthemans! Build Thread!!!---motor is painted!!!

    so I finished painting the block I think it turned out great I threw the heads on an the front cover to see what it looked like tell me what you think. I was thinking about painting the front cover from the bottom of the heads and down to make it look more like the head is seperate from the block but I might keep it the way it is and clear coat it. :bunny3: :bunny3: :bunny3: O0 O0 :dancing6: :dancing6:

    Looks really good, bro. I think I would paint the front cover, though. That would look killer.
