Rick:

I actually may be selling the Pro Flo if it does not sell on the truck. My truck is on Ebay right now and I am offering it with a new 383 with intake and carb. If the truck sells, I will very possibly sell the ProFlo. I have a lot of upgrades I have performed to make it better and even have 2 different chips for it for 2 different cam intake duration ranges.

The 9" was not a cheap trip but I think I got a decent deal on it. It has a 3.50 with Trac Lock, 31 spline axles, late model GM brakes. I have about 1500 in it including the adjustable wilwood prop valve.
