So, did you do any mods to it when you repaired the bent rod? Mine is similar, has a tune and spends allot of time on the rev limiter.

The original thread is 3 years old, and was started because I had an L33 aluminum block high output 5.3 in the garage, and was considering it to go into a sand/street Jeep.

I've since got rid of the 5.3, and picked up an LS2, which will be easier to get up to the 500hp mark that I want. Vehicle goal is low 11s/high 10s on the strip.
