I started yesterday but I ran into a problem. The vendor didnt include the HPOP branch tubes so I have to wait on those, my ARP studs, headgaskets and a flywheel. Hopefully they'll be in this week.

Will let ya know! Thanks!!

bump!

got the engine in and everything connected, crank no start? I dunno. Anyone have those tools that you can plug into the OBD port and see the fuel/oil pressures and all that fancy stuff? Im debating on just getting it towed back to the shop that I took it before and let them hassle with it.

I went through 2 sets of fully charged batteries trying to start it. 30 seconds each crank to try and get it to go.. nothing just goes on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on

Thanks Bubba! Yea that tow truck was *****in', I like that company they are goodfella's

The shop figured out whats wrong with it. 205psi oil pressure. got a leak somewhere, I think its in the oil rail ontop of the injectors where it couples to the stand pipe. Hope they can figure it out soon, I miss my truck
