It's going to be tight from the looks of the picture they posted on FB the other day.

Very Nice Petro! I wanted one of those, but I missed the price increase. When I called, I told him I would prefer the cheaper one. That for my junkyard motor it didn't make sense, unless the new scrapper made more hp than the old by at least the same percent as the price increase. I think he was going to entertain bringing back the cheaper old one, but at that point, I lost interest.

Make sure you have at least .060" clearance everywhere. That looks very close and you don't want to take out a bearing by hitting the scraper.

I'll make sure to take my time and double check all the clearances. The last thing I want is that causing problems.

Some more parts came in

[Just a update cause I'm excited about dropping the frame off today to have some major surgery done to it.

New shock bar to make shocks 90*
Afco sliders installed
Reinforcement bar at the rear welded in
Front crossmember redone to look and perform better
Notches cut and boxed in for the axle
Front spring eyelets raised 1" to drop the truck without using a tall drop block
V-bands welded onto headers
Few other little odds and ends too[/QUOTE]
What are you going to do to the front crossmember to look and perform better?
Also, who makes that gas tank that you posted about? I would think you'd have to reinforce the frame before and after a tank mounted like that.

For the front crossmember I'm having the notch that allows the LS2 Vette oil pan to clear redone. My previous notch didn't look the best and the plate welded in could've been setup stronger. So we are cutting out the old multiple piece notch and using a single piece and bending it on a brake to make the new better looking and stronger front crossmember.

Rick's Tanks makes the stainless fuel tanks. He does custom and production type fuel tanks. I'm not sure I follow on why frame reinforcements would be needed before and after the tank. I do have new crossmember welded in at the very rear of the frame now and new shock bar welded in as well. We're actually still tinkering around with the frame even after all this time haha.

I'm really wishing I would have had the engine built with a 58x reluctor and updated the Current Perofrmance to a E38 or E67 PCM. Oh well hindsight is 20-20 and I'll do some more research on 80E swaps for E40/T42. I believe I have the HPTuners 2.5 bar OS under wraps while using a LS3 slot style MAF. (My current OS is a 2006 TBSS so that factory stuff works seamlessly and all PnP) DSXTuning covered me on the Flex Fuel deal. I'll also get a 2.5 bar MAP from him. A E38 would've been easier and better for this setup.

You should really look at the Holley Dominator for this beast. It'll work with either a 24 or 58 wheel and control the trans.

I've been a fan for a long time. For an engine like this it makes sense to go with an aftermarket EFI system.

I have a few pullies... A 4,3.75, and a 3.4xx something. The Wegner direct drive I'm using has a 12% OD balancer while the rest of the front drive is normal driven. The goal is somewhere in the 16-18lb range or more depending on what it takes to get hopefully 850+RWHP out of it. For street driving I'll tone it down quite a bit. The blower is supposed to be capable of 30lbs and a touch over 1000hp so we'll see. I'm anxiously awaiting results of a similar build on another forum. Wegner Motorsports has quite a few setups like this making some nice power levels which gives me hope.

Blowers aren't rated in boost pressure, but flow. Pressure is just a measure of restriction.

Thanks for the tip..I would be all over the Holley Doninator if my stock gauge cluster would function with it. It's a must for the direction I'm going with the truck. Whipple rates the max flow as 1720CFM
