Well, The truck has been sitting too long and now I want to finish it up.
4-3.jpg



To do list
Pull the 4.3 and replace with a 454, Just got to find a good short block for a good price.

Find a trans.

New rear end. (ford 9in maybe?)



Paint.


Basically this truck will be set up for drag racing.

Just tired of letting it sit.

Let me know what y'all think

Thanks,
Brian

That looks to be an awesome project truck. RCSB is my favorite config. for a racing/street truck. Take plenty of pics along the way.

Nice truck dude. Sounds like a good project you'll be starting. Like Nick, the Regular cab w/ Short bed body type is best for drag racing.

i sold my 97 vortech 454 2 months ago.....which i could have helped ya.
do 4 link, with coil overs....that'd be some sick launches...dont go any higher than 20s if you plan on doing some mild street racing.

Why not the LQ4? I think you would be much more satisfied with it. More potential and mpg. Even the 5.3 swap would be great.
