Thanks . I always wanted a boat and truck that matched after seeing a Chevelle and flat bottom that was on the cover of Hot Rod that Mike Farley painted with flames. Then I was doing some work on Mike's flat that had a blower on it and had to copy it.

The blower is huge and makes the engine look like it is a small block, I am trying to sneak up on the tune. Right now it is 15% underdriven to see what it makes for boost and only has 25° of timing. I have seen 8 lbs so far so there is a lot left in the tune and looking at the plugs there isn't much heat in the engine. Want to be safe, not hurt anything and get used to having a lot more horsepower than the old engine. Besides I have to learn how to handle the new found power.

Nice, to see the Ford! Did it originally come with the Ford? Don't see too many. My '73 17'10" originally came with a 429 Cobra Jet and that's going back in it eventually.

It had a BB Chevrolet in it originally. I bought it from the second owner as a bare hull and put the Ford in it.
