Anything new on your build lately? Hope shes still kickin. Between you and Max cubes, I've been getting a lot of ideas and accumulating parts for a 4900 sc build here in good ol amish country... but I got a 5.3L swap to finish on my wrangler yet so I'm just watching from the side lines to see whats gonna work the best for me between you fellas experimenting lol. I'm hoping both you and max get back on the forum and start posting again... I would def like to know what kind of hp you guys are pushing. My goal is 300-350 hp which I don't think that is completely impossible with this motor and a m90.
Do yourself a HUGE favor and before you install a 4.9 flip it over and install new main and rod bearings. If I have learned one thing from my nightmare, the 4.9's stock bearings won't last to high rpm / high power. All the people with increase power level 4.9s have been built and new bearings installed so you don't hear much about failures from stock setups.
