Buy some beer & invite the neighbors over next weekend so they are less likely to complain about the noise during the fire up/breakin run.

Yep I am going to test the new engine and Rubber on my nice driveway might make a few Launches for the Neighbors sake... :twisted: I think 800+ hp would make a few marks hehehehhee 8) Launching it @ 5500 stall..

D your right these are best of times. But I have to tell my best of times worst of times celebration story. I was getting ready to fire up my new 351W, so I put some gas in the nearest container " Yes it was a beer can" you can see where this going already! Well I poured some gas in the carb fired it up, broke in the cam. Every thing was Great, so we all toasted are accomplishment and I grabbed my beer can and took nice pull off it in victory and almost ****! I now had half a throat and mouth full of 95 octane I spit it 25' easy! :shock: Everything turned out fine none went down the hatch so just left a very bad, cold taste. My son and my bud's were laughing for the next forty five Mn. at me expense. Thank God I took my CIGAR out of my mouth before. :oops: :oops: :oops: :lol: **** happens but only once! Good luck with the new Motor. :D

Everything will go fine. I was nervous as hell when I fired mine up for the first time. Mostly, because I put it together myself. :D Looking forward to the successful update. 8)
