Nice. I am working on our own 69. I am installing the Vintage AC and doing the wiring in the cab. I got stuck this weekend on the cab light door switches. Do you have them wired up? Can you send a pic of where the switches are in the door jamb?

Waiting on the mailman to show. Howell harness, tuned ECM, Fuel lines, fuel filter and transmission mounting hardware. Gave all the specs to the harness manufacturer, hope it’s as easy to install as they make it sound.

Have a buddy that just used the same harness on a LS 6.2 jeep swap out. It took him awhile but he said it wasn't difficult just time consuming.

That thing will be a Hemi Killer for sure. Sure is purdy. One thing I wonder is why you haven't added an "X" pipe in the exhaust. Them Gen III motors with cathedral port heads like that X pipe for better scavenging and helps the torque a lot on low end and HP on top end. Any idea where you will be on horsepower?
500+ maybe?

Oh BTW, that is a nice job they did on them heads. A good head job is the best bang for the buck and can make even so so cams perform much better. Heads are a major choke point for most engines. Money well spent.

Curious minds would like to know numbers
300 cfm @ .550 lift would be ideal on intakes with 200+ on exhaust

From your head pictures it looks to me like they removed any shrouding from around the valve seats and the valve guide bosses in the port runners have been cleaned up and reduced obstruction. Nice CNC work in the combustion chambers. I like the satin finish in the ports. Helps keep fuel atomized for better mix and burn.

Now for some good exhaust to pull all that power out

That setup screams Borla Atak with an X pipe. You motor will sound much better than this one.

Waiting on my buds to show up and it’s motor swap time!!! Going to do a quick verification on the motor and make sure she’s good then get the old motor out and the new one in. I pray I have all the parts and if I don’t, Oreillys does.

With flat tops and the MS3 nitrous bump stick with wide LSA and depending on chamber volume I would guess around 9.5 to 9.8. Would also depend on timing gear setup. Earlier intake open raises cold cranking compression. Later intake open lowers CR. The devil is always in the details when engine building. Parts need to be matched to be compatible and compliment each other. Port matching intake to heads is often overlooked and when done properly is a good bonus.
Gotta wonder how it would feel with a 200 shot of NOX on -4 deg retard

Buds showed up at 9:00 and the motor was out by 11:15. After 4 trips to the parts house, LS motor was in by 5. Had to assemble the TC to the tranny and the tranny to the motor. Took a while to get the motor mounts to line up but it’s in. Working on fuel system this morning.
