Re: Post pics of your 4.3 engine



mods in sig.
i dont like to estimate power, but if i had to guess i would say 260~270 at the crank. 215~225 at the wheels. i promise it will look better in the spring .

Re: Post pics of your 4.3 engine

Nothing special looking, super old played out pics..









Mods are typical stuff
270 cam, p&p heads, JE pistons and rods, Cryoed crank, TunerCat, all the bolt ons, blah blah. If you dont know the truck, you must be new

Its gone 12.6 on street tires with 4wd

Re: Post pics of your 4.3 engine



Here are some more played out pics! Powerdyne s/c with a stock pulley and some other minor mods dyno'd at 222 rwhp. It felt significantly stronger after e-fans, TB mod, descreened MAF, less belt slip and some tinkering with the meth but the headunit is now in pieces so who knows (anyone surprised??? I didn't think so...).
