    I don't need it right away so take your time but don't forget where it came from. I was going to tell you to join Nasty Z if you called me but I guess you beat me to it.

    lol, Great deal! I did a little better though- my "fresh 25 year old" 454 never had oil in it, but I have Hypereutectic LS6 pistons! and paid $450, also he threw in a 350 shortblock and a pair of rectangle port heads! I sold off the rectangles and that more than paid for the entire purchase! Seriously you got a great deal!

    Compression is almost the same as your T Type, a little boost will wake that bbc right up :)
