    Sy 1713

    Sy 1713-img_20170513_165724205-jpgI have been working on this truck for some time now. I bought it as a roller with no motor.

    New motor. New trans. Motor with .30 forged pistons, comp 415 cam, l35 heads, 60 lb injectors, 20g turbo, turbo tweak chip. Trans is stout.
    I got this to save it, and I have a tentative deal worked out, but if it falls through, it will be for sale.

    More Pics:

    The original paint buffed out nice, so I don't think I will repaint the truck.

    I mounted the trans cooler with fan. No leaks.
    It's running and driving now.

    Re: Sy 1713

    Wow. You put a lot of work into that truck, put the good parts and right upgrades on it. This will be a good truck for someone.
    Did you buy a new complete headliner or recover the original?

    Rock Auto. I checked a couple of places, and it seems that a lot of suppliers get theirs from ACME, including rock auto.

    I installed the ATR 3" catback exhaust this morning. I bought this off another owner, and it looks great and fits like a glove. Truck sounds great.
