    Looks like you really took your time and did a nice job on everything (painting and cleaning)-looks great. I gotta come to a meet and check out the beast in person.

    OOO-nevermind I see the radiator cap is off but it looks really close.

    also-it looks like you couldnt go with the new bellows in the above pictures of the motor on stands-I guess you used the stock one??

    here's the video 1000 rpm idle. tune is way off. open headers

    had to take the motor slightly apart. the MLS head gaskets are leaking water externally. so, going to retorque and see if that holds it.

    and that's at 1000 rpms. once i can bring it down to 800-900, it'll have some more chop to it.

    ET wise, should be easy mid 10s. power wise, should be around 430 rwhp on motor. low 600s on the juicy goodness
