That's whats on mine. You can see plenty old/new comparisons side by side in my thread.

I have the same color on my 88 and really it darkens up quite a bit after a few runs so it really comes out close to original. I have a pic in my build thread of it painted but not sure if I ever got a pic of it after running it a few times and right now it is to dirty to get a picture.

I've finally gotten around to opening up the 5.8.

This really has not been moving forward much lately. That was due to several factors, including taking classes again. I have actually started, stopped, and restarted this project once due to changing trucks and selling and re-purchasing another 5.8. Recently, I have started working on this again.

I have a question about the Comp 35-512-8 and GT40 heads. I am considering a set of remanufactured GT40 heads. Will the valve springs need to be upgraded in regards to the cam being used?

I just went through this on another thread. The question is "will the springs that come with my reman'd gt40 heads be adequate for the cam I want?", and the responsible answer is "not without testing the springs as per the specs provided with the cam card". Don't assume, who knows what you're getting with the heads. Are they adequate? Maybe. Can any of us tell you? Nope.

Test them, or just buy the recommended springs off the rip.

Well, I did find this info from the manufacturer. It says in the notes that stock springs need to be upgraded. I also noticed that it says that it is compatible with 5.0, but not with 5.8.

Well that's my cam & I'm using my upgraded trick flow springs with it and 1.7 rockers.

I did have a long discussion with Comp tech support that yes, it was a 5.0 cam & it would play nice in my 94-5.8 SD 2wd E4 & 3.08s' before I pulled the order trigger with Summit.

Yes, any cam that works for a 5.0 will undoubtedly work with a 5.8. In fact, with added displacement, there would be cams that worked for the 5.8 that wouldn't work on a 5.0. With added displacement, you can run "larger" cams and still keep the SD system happy.

might want to start a new thread, but that method is always safest. Usually if the electronics plug in, it is compatible.
Do you mean if you swap in a 351? Or just replacing the trans? We kinda need a little more info on what you're doing.
