Ive put my 545 on hold for now. Im waiting to buy pistons after I decide just how far Im going with it. The original plan was naturally aspirated with forged pistons in the 10:1 range but before its all said and done there could be 1 big turbo or 2 small turbos in the works. The sky and my wallet is the limit.
HAHA. Without starting a offroad forum style debate... there will be no BFG ATs on this truck ever.
I put those tires on there so the cherry picker could reach the engine and lift it over the radiator support. It was too tall with my swampers.
Here it is with the bigger tires on it.
The 545 will be super expensive to build the way I want it even if I go the NA route. The turbo deal is more or less a brain fart because I really dont want to swap over to EFI and its waaaay too much trouble to tune a blow through carb. Id also have to go to an aftermarket block and billet crank. The upside would be 1000+ streetable HP.
