this is the like 5th start of the engine. fired it a few times on a stand but didnt let it run for longer than 20 or 30 seconds cuz of no water, well now its installed in the truck just waitin on tranny cooler lines then it will be moving. let me know what ya all think!

this was a start and idle with a few revs on vid. the sound is alot different in person than on camera, it was recorded with a cell phone.

this vid was just me thinkin about warmin it up alittle with holdin revs but changed my mind and revved it alittle higher and shut it down not long after that.

big thanks to all those who helped with the build, the guys that sold me the parts and my brothers for helpin me keep sane through this whole 2 year build.
