well long story short, whiSSle has a new heartbeat, and I cant wait to have a chance to drive her for the first time in nearly 2.5 years. add to this, ask questions, i will do my best here are some of the specs and changes. i will ad more as i go. consider this a blog, a spew of my mind on here to show whats up!

6.0 liter block, bored and stroked to a 408. Callies rods and crank, Mahle pistons. 10.25:1 compression. zippy spec'd cam with .612,.612 lift, and 224/230 duration. 114+3 lsa. cnc ported heads by lingenfelter. yella terra rockers, lunati springs, truck intake, build and specd by TPiS in Chaska Minnesota. final numbers on the engine dyno were 794.6 HP, and 763 torque. after 5700 rpm, fuel was limited, and the supercharger belt was slipping dramatically. max boost on the 3.6" pulley was 11psi, which is right where i wanted to be.

I have some pretty stuff that i added, changed and altered, I will post up in my next post... right now, this is enough to entice some questions.

the best part of being back... YOU GUYS! cant wait till summer!

ok. this weekend was spent snake skinning all the hoses and wires, as my OCD kicked in a little bit. frame rails in the engine bay are coated and drying with the heat cranked in the garage. 3rd coat is on now. on a side note, I was playing around and cleaning the PCM, and i heard a clicking sound, like a relay, low and behold, there were 4 chaffed wires,rubbing each other and coulda been really bad, had i not noticed this. good thing i keep extra PCM pins handy. all soldered and back together now.

TPIS made me some spacers for my pully for manual tensioner, as well as drilled and tapped my water pump for my steam tube.

as for snake skinned stuff, all a/c lines are done (ordered a new O ring set for good measure)Hydroboost lines are done, trans cooler line, reloomed the main starter wires, taped the harnesses to the PCM for safety and security, snake skinned the loom for ground to the hood, yeah, im over compensating for something....


cant wait!

the petty sh!t is time consuming, but worth it. went hunting today for LED wheel well issues, come to find out, i have 4 burnt LEDs, one in each wheel well.. I had two extras, soldered them in, and waiting for more from my sponsor. should be here in few weeks.

the custom made gauge pods have been given the go ahead, as I have 3 others interested, and they helped pay for the programming, as well as some of the cost of my pods. Also, these will be posted and a group buy will be offered as soon as I have these 3 sets done and available for show. I am excited about these, something a little diff from the norm of everyone elses offerings.

thats all i got for now...

called and added another set to the gauge pod order this morning. I think these things might take off better than I expected. we will see. cant wait to see what people think once they are done.

I have some health issues being taken care of next week, so I am trying to take care of things best I can before I am out for 7 -10 days. Also, going to be doing an LED swap in Hummer H2 while I am sitting on my ass. something to keep my mind off my sore spots.

Ok, I also took some RED LED strips and lit them up last night and temporarily stuck them under the dash, it was too much for my liking, I also put them in the vents for the A/C and that was to much as well. I am content with the interior LED lighting.

I need to get this thing on the lift at work so I can clean and undercoat the thing.

OK, its going to be a decent weekend, Working on a Minnesota Vikings Charity fund raiser boat this weekend. should be fun!!


Have a great day everyone!!
