    Nice motor! 4 bolt mains too! That ought to give you all the grunt needed to haul trash, haul ass, whichever needed. What cam are you going to run?

  30. Oh yeah, big block power, I ran a 383 in my Henry J and it did real good 10.5 - 1 and a 538 lift cam, pulled the wheels every pass, with that being said when I grenaded it I switched to a 489 big block.
