Yeah G they are the weld 2.0's I love the look of them but they were almost 1300 with tires and tax, Oh well its only money right...lol... Thats what I tell the wife anyway.

I am not a big block fan since I have only owned one other and it was a junk 468 that only lived 22 passes. I got a good deal on this 496 and it was built right and has good parts in it. Its 14:1, .714 roller, gm 990 heads. Should run 9.70's or 80's I hope in my 3200 pound boat. Well see in about a month I guess.

Everybody has their own preference though.

To me, Small blocks are for Racing and Big blocks are for Towing.

Sucks when someone digs up an old post, but it sure was funny.

Thanks, I put the grille in just for the look. It had one of those decals that I think looked like poop. It cooled good before and I really didnt notice much difference. I run 16 volts which makes my cooling system work excellent.

Here is a before with the sticker...



And Now...
