Hell yeah, love the truckHey all. I am new to the board. My name is Danny but ppl call me Soda.My hot rod outside Ive been working on for over 10 years now (where did the time go????) is a 65 chevy C10, 355 sbc, (350 cid w/.030 over bore) twin 63mm turbos, air to air cooler, 850 CSU blow thru carb, TH-400 trans, B&M mega shifter, trans brake (soon) on a full frame and a weak ass 12 bolt rearend Its making about 700+ Hp on about 15#'s of boost (Iv'e gotta get a 9" and ladder bars or 4 link and a cage now that it comes to mind lol) 120 octane fuel to keep it out of detonation. I sure do wish this damn build would end already. I've been on it for WAY longer than I wanted to and put more cash than I like to think about not to mention working in a parking space in front of the house (while ducking the management's rule of no working on your cars crap) DAMNIT I need a garage! You know tho, If I could do it all over again, I would have bought one done, or went with a 5.3 or a 6.0 LS based turbo motor and spray it with as much NOS or methanol as it could take.make well over a 1000 Hp, Blow the mootha flooka up and build another one for about $5-$600 out of the junk yard and continue lol. Ahhhh, hind sight is a real some bitch sometimes aint it.
I sim race and work on my truck mostly and play Pro series drag racing in the mornings when I have a tall cup of coffee and what not.
I'm 49 yrs and 50 in November, I got 3 AWESOME kids. 27 (Austin),18 (Jonathon),& 16 (Airin my daughter)
