nah, it's an 06 3500, forged crank, rods, pistons. big cam, ported heads, ported LIM, custom UIM 75mm LS1 TB, LS7 lifter internals in the stock lifters, double roller timing chain, basically a full retard build.



There's always a fuller retard... You're not serious until you're running 1/2" pushrods.

sound quality is crap, but here's a short vid

"I am not what you so glibly call to be a civilized man. I have broken with society for reasons which I alone am able to appreciate. I am therefore not subject to it's stupid laws, and I ask you to never allude to them in my presence again."

I think you should give up now, call it quits, and park it in my driveway. Lol.
I'm enjoying watching this build.
Good luck.

Curious why you tried to go this route? Seems like extra work when you could just use an inline fill? Have we talked about this? I can't remember, your swap is taking too long lets get this tuned so we can see some numbers and find an excuse to boost mine!

you are trying to guide the push rods right so the rockers wont turn ? if that is what you are looking to do why not get BBC guide plates and cut them in the middle if needed and make them the width you need bolt them to a bare spare head and weld back together it is just a thought and by the way you are doing a great job would love to see this car some day

good news, alternator bracket works, no odd noises or anything, belt wasn't destroyed in seconds, nothing exciting happened, it just worked! the car didn't overheat for the short time I ran it in the driveway, which is another plus!

Awe man seriously!? Was there something building pressure in the line like a plug in the turbo or something?

If you are running oil to a turbo a standard rubber oil line held on a hose nipple by clamps will not hold. Either use a steel line, double flared with brass fittings (preferred) at the ends or AR fittings and stainless steel braided lines.
