    well got all the accessories bolted up except the alternator. ran into a little snag with the block not having a hole for the center bolt on the bracket so looks like its getting held on with two bolts. other then that waiting to get the intake then its good to go




    the headers arre all heat wrapped too so we will see how much heat that keeps out of the engine bay

    Well a closing update here i guess you could say:

    All installed and running, waterpump decided that it wanted to piss EVERYWHERE so replaced it and painted the new one:

    its a little dirty but you get the point lol

    Got it all back together and street tuned (wanted over 700 to dyno tune and im not made of money) drove great, had a nearly perfect powerband just like i had planned and built it for and then the very last rocker arm on the pass side decided it wanted to break itsself out of the head making the heads NON F'N FIXABLE. well at this point i was DONE with the car luckily i had a pair of good 241's laying around, it had been nothing but problem after problem and i simply couldnt allow myself to keep throwing money into something that only runs half the damn time. so i traded it in at my work and got enough out of it and got a daily. sad to see i know after all of this work, time and money just to get rid of it but it is the smartest financial decision on my part ESPECIALLY since im looking to buy a house in august.

    this is what the head looked like when it broke, originally thought it was a headgasket because of how it acted and smoked bright white

    Look at the top by the GM stamp, was paper thin because of how much the heads were ported, im assuming that is why it broke away

    and another


    and guess what is the plan for my next car/truck???
