Project going broke 2008

For anyone who knows me from other forums you all know winter time I pretty much do some sort of major project to my truck. This year consist of ported heads....Even bigger injectors and of course compounds.....Well here are some pictures of me and the guys working on the truck
Doug on the phone getting the transjack

Doug and scotty getting the trans bolts out

ready to come out

out and cleaned up

Motor already all apart.

It turns out I blew another head gasket at the center cylinder. I think it had something with me removing the stud when I bent the pushrod back in may. I also think it didnt help be addicted to Nitrous. I was using real big jet sizes and Im not one to use it at any light on the street.

Im probably ordering my parts this week. Im also ordering my compounds later this week I hope. I will tell you there is alot of work that needs to be done. Im removing the whole underneath and painting everything and powdercoating.

I will post more when I get them

Also I included a picture of my truck before we took it apart

It may have been the nitrous, but I think you're more on about it being from removing the stud. I hope those that want to change bolts to studs without redoing the headgaskets will take note of this. What's happening to the VGT-SS, if you don't mind me asking?
