The old engine was leaked at the head gaskets into the valley and on to the exhaust manifolds making a pleasure smell inside the cabin.

The new engine comes standard with 380hp, 430 ft-lb torque. The stock blower has already been sent off for porting and polishing and will also be underdriven to create 15 lbs of boost (stock is 8 lbs.). We are also puttinig a cold air intake, a special tune and equal-length headers, high flow cats and a new stainless performance exhaust. Lastly, the transmission and transfer case are getting beef up to take the added horsehpower and torque.

I should be done in a month and has already been in the shop from a month. Can't wait to get it back. I'll post pictures as the work progresses.
I really like the sound of this.
