            Here I was hoping for a Jeep build
            Only thing better than a 4.0 would be a 4.25
            what's the delta in cost?

                      make sure you inspect that oilpan
                      milodon does not have a reputation for quality welds (something they blame on the EPA and their inability to test welds with oil)

                          And finding those damn studs are near impossible. I now have 2 sets because Summit can’t follow simple directions.

                              I like what you are doing there, I am working on similar build, you are ahead of me so I can get some pointers from you. Is that Howards a shelf cam or custom grind ?

                              It is a custom grind cam, and honestly I am not sure what grind the builder ordered we were talking about it Friday when it arrived at his shop, so I have yet to get all the specs hopefully in the next few days I will have the specs and I will share them when I get them.

                                one thing for sure you are using quality parts , should be a nice engine, wish i had gone with the Mahle pistons . Much lighter than the DSS pistons i'm using
