    That is very cool. One question why did they wait and put the rockers and shafts on BEFORE torquing the headbolts?

    Because the rocker shaft bolts ARE head bolts.

    I know this thread is a few months old, but was curious to know if you ran the 390 on a dyno and if you'd be willing to share the numbers?

    Thanks! Great build!
