    Got the pistons I finally decided on from DSS since they let me just buy the pistons although they weren't supposed to give me rings for the amount I paid so I got them free lol.

    I ordered Trick Flow 6 bolt LS3 255 heads from Summit. At a later point if I want power I'll be sending them to Frankenstein Racing Heads to get ported. My builder really suggested going with these of course after I bought the GMPP heads but I sold them quickly for about what I bought them for as well as a bunch of other stuff so I was able to more than afford them, that and they weren't as expensive as I thought.

    Ordered a Brand new FAST 102 LS3 style to go with my TFS 255 heads. I was trying to decide between the FAST and the new MSD and I got this brand new FAST for almost $200 cheaper than the MSD with all the gaskets and hardware needed to install which was what made me go that route instead of MSD. Well that and the date for shipping the MSD intakes put keeps moving back so who knows when they will actually be available.

    Now that I am free from training and on leave for two weeks I will be getting back into this build or at least the next steps of it.

    He would have run out screaming "My eyes....they burn. I can't unsee what has been seen!" Lol it was a total disaster when I left but will be much better when I pack it all up to move obviously.

    So the things left for my engine to buy are as follows:

    8.8 rear with wavetrac differential

    Well my truck is all packed up and ready to take my engine stuff down to Tick Performance! It is a little scary knowing there is around $15000 sitting in my truck bed in car parts.
