ya thats right.. seems like everything i break.. i BREAKKK.. no reason to half ass it right?...makes for good things on the wall of shame!!!..haha damnit!


ya im thinkin forged for sure...im just trying to get ideas around for what im going to do..i dont need to make a monster out of it.. trucks these big running low 12 or high 11 is already a monster if u ask me.. but i just want it strong.. so i can drivee the piss out of it.. and not worry about it...( as much ) lol so thats in the works at the moment..so many ways to go..i was think about just forgen a stock motor and puttin a cam in...or a 370 with a good blower cam.. but not sure what the hp diff is.. or even sell the radix and get the new one... :jester: but then again i was so close to high 11s ...that much more power is going to break that much more shit..lol

i just have it stuck in my head how i really kick my self in the ass with my camaro.. i cant drive as much as a would like because its soo radical... that i dont wanna do that to this truck.. i love the truck and i wanna drive it that the whole point !!...but ive always got the go fast bug..lol




anyways.. thanks for the support guys!

that really hurts to look at. I would look for a junk yard 6.0 and then get it back running, then ship out the SC to maggie and have them freshen it up or get the upgrade...then kind of start over. The amount of work getting these trucks in the 12's is nothing to be over looked and if you want to be able to beat on it you need to start over. Or get a stroker and set it up to not use the SC and you will not have to worry about the radix not being big enough for a 408.


good luck

well i understand what u mean.. but the truck ran 12.3 at 111mph...on a stock motor.. and stock cam

and my thoughs numbers its got more in it.. was just spinning alil

ive thougth about the upgrade.. but its what 2400? and then i get the head unit back.. and i cant really do anything with that? i dont think anyone would want just the headunit woudl they? i dont evenknow what that woud be worth.. i wish u could just send it in.. and they would keep it all and just take more money off...thats alot up money for an upgrade

yep, I dont get the upgrade deal...it not much of one. Maggie knows they dont want these old units, and what market is there for a head unit, very little. Going forged 408 will get you back on the road, maybe you could spray a bit and I am guessing it could be done for around $4k...
