New motor is in truck

Well I am smoking up the WV mountains again, it is in and running again.
This motor seems a little weak compaired to the last one, but it is a much smoother running motor at all RPM's.

Well I have 500 miles on it now....I think I would like to have a thousand on it before I really pour the coal to it. But I guess if he is in a hurry to race, I can make a sacrafice for him.

I was up in the Greer area today about noon, ran 7 east over to 92 south to run from Morgantown to Elkins. Blew a little carbon out and cleared it's throat going down 92 today.

After he said he wanted to put 4 tons on the back of his to race me, he is probably at the spring shop trying to get a stack of springs on his like I have on mine. He was kinda lookin at the twelve leaves on each side in the rear at the meet and greet.

Lookin at his truck, I think he is not gonna like the ride though, almost like you running down the road bob tail. That 5.4 and the six speed dusted me going down the hills, but as we all know in WV the only reason to go down the hill is so you can go up the next one.
