Looks awesome! Did they wiggle that down in there with the headers attached, or was that photo for show?

Is there going to be any problem with heat from those headers since they stick out there quite a bit more than the stock manifolds?

Sorry to hear it's taking so long. Expecting it up and running by July and it's now almost September, kinda sucks.

Wish I could be there the first time it's fired up!

They originally tried installing the engine with the headers but it just wouldn't go in so they took them off an installed them after putting the engine in. There are no fit issues - they fit up in the engine compartment perfectly. Prior to buying the engine it sat in a a shop since 2001 and had never been fired. My shop got it fired up on the first try. They said it runs great. There are still a few loose ends with brackets and the underdrive pulley to get for the supercharger but those items should be here this weekend. I think I'll get it back in a week after it's dyno'd - just ave to find some time on their all wheel drive dyno.

She's finally done and ready for delivery.

5 months in the making - this thing is a monster.

Here's a picture of the completed engine compartment. However, almost every part of the truck was touched, even the interior.

To all that are interested (I know some think I am nuts) - I've had the truck back for ~10 days and I couldn't be happier. The shop that did the work was unbelieveably detailed. This thing runs better than it ever did when it was new - 14 years ago. I can't explain how satisfied I am and it's just FAST. It has pick up like by buddies 300 SRT8 that has had work done to it.

For 5,500 lbs., it really moves and the gas mileage isn't as bad as I thought it would be. I'm getting 11.4 mpg and that's while being heavy with my right foot.

All in all, definately worth the wait and $$$$.
