Juanís Bad A$$ L build

I bough my truck a year ago from an older couple, it was one of those just going leave it the way it is, but little by little the darn thing has snow balled into to full forged build with truck flow heads and KB 2.3, Iím still debating what cams to get as I will most likely drive the truck everyday(way to much fun not to do so) hopefully I get to update this thread as the rest of the parts keep piling up



Here is the block is a Jdm motor that was on the truck for only 7 pulls before going with a different set up, Iím taking it to the machine shop I want them to go through everything before I install it even tho it got refreshed according to the old owner


Trick flow heads 38cc chambers I donít know if they are 185s or 195s, I got a deal I couldnít pass up on


Also have a set of PI head that are Cnc ported but I have no idea by who but they have springs and retainers bronze guides and lager valves for Iwhat I could see
j

And here is the KB 2.3 with jlp sheet metal intake


I might be asking a bunch of stupid questions since this is my first v8 build! I done a bunch of my race bikes but nothing to this scale so Iím sorry in advance guys lol

That Kenne Bell is going to scream with that JLP plenum. I might want to buy stock in ear plugs.

I have modular head shop stage 3 heads with stage 3 cams and Iíve been daily driving mine without any problems. IMO a stage 3 cam isnít too aggressive for DDíing.

Hell im even on 17X7 skinnies up front.

Nice. If you have anything o get rid of post it up. We all love parts. Post progress when you can, and let us know how it comes together. Good luck with the build.

Well, I'm on 18 X 7 as well. Although skinnier than stock, I really don't consider a 225 or 235 to be real skinny. There are guys on this forum running 4 inch front rims and suitably skinny tires. Too skinny AFAIC. I'd be afraid to use the brakes too aggressively with front tires that small. But it sure looks cool. Seen a few stangs around my area with front tires like that.

I have to look at those I think I made my mind and Iím going to used the trick flows I have to check, cause I do drive my truck every day so cam selection is going to be very important

Iím going to keep the stock wheels on Iím not a hardcore drag racer, I just want to have fun with the truck I would be afraid to put skinnyís on it as I do drive the things sometimes 300 or 400 Mile trips for no reason just for the love of driving the thing

The 195 doesn't come in a 38cc, so that pretty much settles it. The real question is are the track heats or not, which will dictate the valve springs on them.

Thanks bud! I try to keep it clean, Iím just going to keep it at around 500hp to the wheels I want the truck to last as long as I own it, i need a decent machine shop to have them look at the block once over just to make sure is on working order and also one of the pivot guides need to be replaced, Iím not going to get greedy and throw all the power I can to it

Thanks! I guess that sums it up, I know they are 185s then, also know they are from summit racing cause they are the only ones that use cnc chambers, now just have to see what springs are on it see if I need to swap them out to suit the cam I pick for the build, also would you happen to have a video of your truck I will like to hear it

When I built my truck I had 4 goals, cornering, a 500+hp dyno sheet, and 11.xx time slip and DD reliability. That last one kept me from really putting the wood to the truck, but I managed to do all 4.

with a built bottomend, heads, and cams, and a 2.3 KB and sheetmetal plenum you should have no problem laying down 600 rwhp on that setup. You can make 500 rwhp safely with that 2.3 KB on a stock block, with a bottom end heads & cams that should be a walk in the park, and 10 second passes.


I'd go with stage 3 cams as well, with the tuning capability now days, they can get them dialed in perfectly fine for DD use, and they sound awesome, and who doesn't love more power!

Thatís the goal I want to have a safe truck on the street and if I go to the track I will like to be able to turn the thing up with no problems, also what stage 3 can you recommend I been looking at different one and there is a bunch of different options out there

I made 530 on a mustang dyno on a pretty conservative pulley ratio, 2.71:1 and 12* timing. Eric think my truck would break into the tens with a race tune and good weather.
