I think it looks better with a remote mount. What's the scoop on the 5.3? It looks great but what did you do inside? Nice project you have going.

Sounds pretty stout. I am going to guess that you break the 450hp mark with that combo depending on your compression ratio. Do you know where that ended up at?

How is the project coming along? Have you had a chance to get that engine fired up yet?

It's goin slowly here lately been workin my butt off at work which is good i guess but not so much for workin on the truck. I been tryin to find brakes for the front but nobody makes any i like except the big 14" 6 piston that i cant afford. Im takin everything off of it to get frame powdercoated and to paint firewall and underside.

Nice build. Why are you having to rewire the truck?

I'm hoping to one day drop an LSx into my dad's '90 so I'm trying to collect all the "To Do" list stuff.

Save some money and see if you can tweak a stock GM computer enough to run it. And the trans too. No need to blow the cash on the BS3 unit if you don't really need it.
