Default I hope I'm not late for work!

The blower build starts HERE

My original build thread (prequel to this thread): https://www.performancetrucks.net/fo...slower-479366/

Well long story short I bent the crank in the other engine. Ran a best of [email protected] I think last fall. I have done a lot of changes since then including better rear shocks, 5" downpipe, coilover front swap, and Im sure other stuff im forgetting. In February it put down 820rwhp on a dyno dynamics I think. Boost was falling off so didnt really get a solid run. And my trans was slipping as it turns out. Ive had the trans and turbo both rebuilt since then and just been waiting on the engine.

I sent the engine back to LME and had them rebuild it reusing my rods and pistons. I had to get a new block unfortunately but this time I have a dragonslayer crank, gas ports on the pistons, and one of their billet reluctor wheels.
