    The owner of the C10 project is at it again. Last time he told us to build an engine for him, then find a vehicle to buy, build and put around it. Who knows where this will lead, but he said ‘rat roddy and boosted’. This time he gave us an intake...

    250 or 292? Either one of those boosted would be my dream.

    To go along with the ‘educate the internet portfolio’ with the 460 that proved they’re not the monsters folks want to make them out to be and the 400 that proved they’re not the boat anchors folks want to make them out to be...next up is an N/A 300 with a stock head...shooting for 1.5hp:1ci to show what it actually takes for some of these innernet claims...

    Currently hold status...you know how it goes, start slinging dollar bills around and your feet start getting cold. It's not a dead project, just sitting in inventory.

    Slow row to hoe honestly...bought the parts, short block is assembled. Can’t seem to find the time to work on ‘just for fun builds’. Winter/Spring seem to be our busiest times, so folks can be on the trails and pits during good weather...so probably fall before we have results.

    10-4, totally understand that. I'll keep an eye out for it. I'm planning on thowing the EFI twin manifolds, offy intake and carb at mine initially to see how it opens her up then go from there. It'll prob never be the full work over of the truck I'd like to have but hoping just to be a fun-to-drive firewood truck in the not so distant future.

    A little pricey, but I’m a big fan of this intake/carb set up for the 300 for most noticeable power increase. But you’re dead on with the efi exh manifold...flows as good or better than most aftermarket headers.

    Definitely a bit pricey w/ the dual carb setup! Will keep in mind whenever I decide to jump on this project.
