I like them fancy ones. Curious if they make a difference, keep us posted.
they're nice,the rear bar hardware is spec'd to 70lbs,in that picture(abet a poor one) you can't see it all but both are partially bent from the process/few summers worth beatings?the rest of the attaching hardware is stout.the bushing bracket's that came with it are average(bent) though.worth it in my book.

Pulled a rusty welding project into the garage for the boy to learn to weld.

Then set a fender on mine.

Gotta put the rest of the front end on, but I think I will be cutting my 5662's in the future!

Maiden voyage was a success! Oil pressure holds about steady 60+psi while driving (still only around 15psi hot at idle, but at even 1200rpm it jumps to 60+), Temp held steady at ~190 with the 180 thermostat. Does burnouts. Little sluggish from a stop, once you get going it pulls pretty good. Still more tuning to do, might finally install my afr gauge soon. Still under the two week shutdown from work, so I have time.

Also everytime I move my split 350 in the garage more inside parts come out :ROFLMAO:

190 on a 50 degree day isnt good with a 180 thermostat.

Something is still wrong with your cooling system

I think that is a good temperature in 50 degree weather, if it climbs to 200 -210 when summer gets here there is no problem with that temperature....
