    I got me a 5.3 but.....

    I've never been super impressed with my previous engine setup. The TBI 350 ran like crap compared to the prior propane setup on the same motor and even worse than the craptastic carb except on the trail.

    I knew I wanted to keep the fuel injected motor just not the fuel motor I had. I'm sure I could have rebuilt the motor and had the TBI tuned but it would still only be an old TBI 350.

    The new 325 CI 5.3 is a newer full roller motor with aluminum heads, and very tuner friendly computer was free ($500 profit parting donor truck). The donor 4l60e tranny from the same truck is another fantastic upgrade with a 3.06 first gear and .7 overdrive compared to the TH350 with 2.52 1st and no OD. After getting the tranny rebuilt and upgraded to 4L70e specs I should have no worries for a long time.

    The first test fire was a success on the first try and the first test drive made me giddy. For the first time since I put a V8 in it 14 years ago I'm happy with the old pig.

    Nothing feels as good as handing out my first stop light ass whooping or idling along at 1500 rpm at 100 km/h.
