That's a good deal on OBX headers. BTW they made my truck about 4x louder, and i got the catted version. so be ready for that.

sparktecmotorsports.com is where i got my set. They are usually the cheapest online since they are the MFG.

That's where I will go through when the time comes.
I know you mentioned it In your build thread, but are you still curious about the Shelby adaptor plate to run an m122, whipple 2.9, ..etc?

I coulda went with .010 over, but usual .020 over is what most manufactors and retailers offer. I think I paid 500 or so for the manley pistons. My manley h-beams also had the 8740's. Those should be fine up to 750 or so.

I went with 38cc Trick Flow 195 Race Heads. CR will be a bit higher, but should increase power when tunned properly.

And glad to see your back also ibd2328! Try to stay away from burning hot metals and sharp objects. Looking forward to seeing both of y'alls projects getting completed!
