    depends what work on the truck is. been under the GAl a few times now for suspension and engine stuff and I always feel like I've been run over by a bus, but there was usually a lot of pushing/pulling and swearing. Did a set of engine bearings in place (not fun!), buggered for days. would agree though it doesnt really keep you fit.

    on the port work once finished and matched up to intake. the worst port flowed 270cfm which is really good flow. could of went more but don't need for 4wd truck. If you look at intake pics you can see the final work, matched up very well. Had Creek flow management do the final work and flow bench everything topnotch and even out ports to 4v heads. lots of work and money for this level of port work. very pleased with the outcome. i try and make 1 hrspwr per cube with my 4wd engines. this one is 408" and should be really close at my elevation. If i had to do this engine again i wouldn't change a thing. was a thought out process and no shortcuts for this application. the next 400 will be a 434 with modern heads like CHI heads and some more bad azz stuff. glad you like and catch you later.
