    SHM makes a nice billet race 5.0L block ;) and I'm sure Kellogg would hook you up with a very nice, stout racing crank as well... :poke:

    Hey Erik, before you destroyed a perfectly good setup :-D, what belt were you running on yours with the 3.200? Was it about 21psi?

    you're a funny guy, however u are correct. destroyed is a strong term, i prefer disassembled :lol:

    yes, i saw 21 psi solid with the 3.2 upper only. I run 3 100mm and 1 90 mm metco idler pulleys with a 76.5" belt, nice snug perfect fit. Gates K080765

    I noticed that you are also selling your LT's.. What is going to be your new setup?? I'm going to assume some BIG primary headers for the High Compression and boost?

    I am eyeballing some ARH headers, 1 3/4" with 3 " collector and matching off road X. that outta be sufficient.

    If you need more room for storage I'd be willing to store your 2.9 under my hood until you get you engine build and ready to drop in??

    Can you post a link to the new thread in here when you start it? I have been following this thread forever. I will search your posts now and see if you've started it yet. Good luck man!

    I will post it here. Have not created the thread yet, but here is a teaser......John @ MP has pretty much convinced me to going with the stroker Boss block.....322 ci. For $300 more.....my friends have referred to it as a "no brainer".

    Getting a quote worked up now, should have it in the next day or 2........

    I will not start the other thread until after the wheels are in motion and the plan is firmly set.
