    haha...sorry, Mat!

    It pulled 620HP @ 6500, and 585ft-lbs
    Not as high as I was hoping, but I'm still real happy with the numbers and where the torque and HP are coming in.
    It'll have to do to get me some good seat time this summer, then we'll see.

    Not sure how to load videos on here??

    They might not be what you wanted, but they are impressive numbers. Those numbers are the goal I have for my truck, but they won't happen with my first engine. Lookin great...and nice shop!

    Thanks guys...yea, I can't wait to get everything moved into the new shop and get settled in. I moved to our new place a year ago, and have been crammed in a real tiny garage under our house. Lotsa stuff and I can't find anything...everything I do takes 4 times as long as it should!

    You've got that right, Jared.
    I can't believe how much I learned from Nat...I wish I had met him sooner!

    A little more progress...

    Finally got the engine, trans, and header combo in the P/U for the first time, and everything fit perfect!

    That's how I spell relief!!:D

    I'm sure it'd be fun on the street...but I built it for the strip only.

    The final assembly is done, gas and brakes are plumbed, wiring should be done over the next couple of days, then it's on to the windows...it's getting close! :D

    Thanks for sharing the build. It turned out awesome and I'm sure the first full bore run will put a smile on your face that couldn't be removed with a 2X4:D
