I was asked to start a thread showing my truck.

So here it is in pictures.
Outside used to look like this:


Underhood used to look like this:


Then this happened:


So I made it look like this: I know...I'm too lazy to rotate it. LOL


So I bought this:


And made it look like this:


And now it looks like this:


And it's all wrapped up in this:






I think that about covers it.

That motor was a BETA test bed for a lot of stuff guys think nothing of nowdays...fuel systems, injectors, turbos, nitrous kits, etc.
It had a pretty hard life....then I met a jug of moonshine in Indy 2 years ago and got in the burnout line....5000+ rpm bouncing off the rev limiter doing a burnout hurt it....bad.
It kicked the rod out the block on my way home.
Disintegrated that rod, 4 holes in the block, annihilated a piston, broke the cam in 1/2, etc. It was ugly....and expensive.
