    Well I can finally post a build thread after sitting around for over a year since I blew my motor last April. I had Kogan Motorsports build my 4.6 with a new Cobra crank, stock rods, Manley pistons, hellfire rings, all ARP hardware, canton oil pan, stage 3 port, custom comp cams, new chains and a billet gear oil pump.
    Other upgrades include fuel system.
    1. Fore triple hat with 3 GT pumps, 3 fpdms, 80lb injectors along with upgraded fuel lines, filter, y block and fittings.
    2. Brake upgrade. I purchase a set of front Wilwood 6 piston, 14 inch rotor and steel braid kit from Summit racing. They had an outstanding sale last summer. Not sure what I am going to do for rears. I really like the rear 4 piston kit that MM sells but I wont have use of my E brake.
    3. Clutch. I went with the RXT Mcleod twin set up with there TOB and billet steel flywheel. I already have the 26 spline upgrade.
    4. Exhaust. Jet coated Kooks LT's 1 3/4, Dr. Gas 3 inch x pipe, 3 inch Magnaflow race mufflers, Black powder coated dynomax 3 inch tails and 4 inch polished Magnaflow tips. I might use Magnaflow 3 inch high flow cats.
    5. Cobra Bobs shifter gaskets along with the anti venom mod. I currently have the Steeda tri ax shifter.
    6. I bought the dual bearing Metco idler kit.
    7. I purchased the TF IC and overflow tank in wrinkle finish. I didnt like the black chrome look.
    8. I had the valve covers coated in wrinkle black.
    9. I think I'm gonna go with the 160 amp alternator from ebay that everyone is raving about.
    10. I have black saleens with NTO5's up front and NTO5R's out in the back.
    I'm going for a pump gas tune first with the stock upper pulley and stock lower. I also have a 3.2 and 3.0 pulley if I ever get use to the power.
    Here is a pic of my Sanford and son truck full of parts lol.

    Thanks Bro :beer: I'm really leaning towards that 160 amp alternator from ebay. I read that your one of there happy customers. I assume that it is still working flawlessly?

    Yea that looks awesome. Did you polish the mufflers? And are you leaving the pre muffler pipes between mid pipe as is?

    Yes I had the mufflers polished as they looked like crap with just the stainless finish. Also as far as the pre muffler pipe I wont know until the fab begins. My guess is that I can keep it the way it is. The Dr.Gas X pipe comes in 7 pieces and can be cut and welded to fit any combo.

    I bought it directly from them last May. I understand that they went out of business a few months ago.

    You know when it was first delivered to my house and I opened the box and saw that it was all in pieces I was like WTF did I just buy? But after really looking at it I realized that it really is a quality piece. Perfect bends no kinks and a true 3 inch design.
