I'll be running the truck stuff. Going to fab up a cowl hood or buy a cowl and it it to my hood. Would love to swap over to the car intake and such but, its not in the cards right now.

Nice build so far man.

Thanks.

I bought a used radiator from a XJ that was running a 350. No idea who made it but he says he never had a cooling issue. I will be trying to run a couple stock electric fans, if that doesn't work I will look at others. The transmission cooler will be a stand alone.

Not really. I have been having an issue with my shoulder and just went and got a cortizone shot a couple days ago so I am feeling much better. With that and the cold temps I haven't spent much time in the garage. Hoping to get out there over the weekend.

I think the Novak headers are the only ones that work.
