I don't know it might just be me, but if in fact littlehotrod is your uncle or not you two must come from the same mold.

It seems to me that if I remember right when he first came on here and posted things for sale in the forum section was told not to and did it again, then comes on here and says he is sorry. Sound familiar? Then comes on here like everything is OK and now wants advice on a project. Sound familiar?

Is it me guys?? Do I need to get back on my meds? Let me know. :wink: :lol:

I would use pistons from a Duramax diesel more compression, then i would get a camshaft for a 604 big block and install it, more cubic inches :!: :!: :!:
