good luck with the build, can't wait to see what kind of power numbers it puts down, or better yet what et's. Do you have plans for the heads, or have heads already? Plate kit or direct port? Intake plans?

Thanks Brad. Im looking to have this wrapped up and have it tuned enough to make some passes Memorial weekend 2011 at the SS Nats. As for the heads, I will be running stock long block except for the cam which ill be swapping out for a more blower friendly one from the one I have in it. The intake, I am also keeping the stock truck intake as my plate system is already built around it as in the wiring, solenoid bracket, hard nitrous/fuel lines, ect. At this point im willing to sacrifice using the stock intake to keep that setup. Which leads to one of the few reasons why im going Procharger. There is a lot of time and effort into the nitrous setup and the Procharger kit will bolt on without modifying any of it.

Good luck on the build. Too bad you didnt get to run your truck at its full potential with its current mods to get a base line for your future improvements.


Thanks Art. I agree, things got crazy this past summer with the move and new house so the truck pretty much got put on the back burner. But instead of sitting around all winter till next spring with this setup im gonna go ahead and move forward.
