Looks good James. Seeing your coil overs makes me wish I went with bds coil over 4.5 inch lift instead of cognito. I just didn't like the 4k+ price tag to go with it. Lol

Love that feeling when she starts to get a little fuel and starts sputtering! Sounds good!

She’s about done! Got a long crank issue when starting (may be the fact the second cp3 isn’t hooked up but it’s plumbed), gotta top off coolant, trans fluid and recharge a/c, then go hammer down! My buddy Jon was in town from Michigan so he stopped by to lend and hand and hang out, then my buddy peter stopped by to see him as well. Hence the gray haired wonder photo bombing lol



Now if Wade would quit playing around with tiny coolant parts so I can get that second cp3 spinning

Default Chevy1925 (James) Truck/motor build

Thanks guys and very much so mike! Should we see how far the stock internal shafts last when I start playing with bigger power??

Btw, if you don’t put the ground for the tcm in the right spot, you spend an hour chasing your tail because efi live won’t find the computers and it won’t crank. It blows the ecm fuse that my air dog switched power covers and I missed when checking all fuses lmao

I’m pretty sure you and Jon have met. I don’t remember what part but he’s not far from you. He’s my Chrysler engineer buddy

Maiden voyage went well. No bad noises, 55psi I’d boost, 3600rpm, and all temps stayed nice and low. Oil pressure is definitely higher with the melling pump and 20w 50. Idles at 35psi with the truck hot (190* coolant). Very nice. Tune will need some tweaking but I’m going to wait till the second cp3 is runnin. Haze free at idle with these “hazy smokey oval bowl pistons”
