    Nice job on those parts. Up here we'd pay that for one good fender.

    Well i bought a 361 Stroker from a local engine builder. Im not really sure about what size cam its got. I know its a 350 .60 over and its a 4-bolt main. I paid $500 cash for it. It needs a 3500 stall so im pretty sure its gonna be awesome. I have only had the motor for a day and i already stripped it and painted it. Here are the current pics of it. This is really gonna wake the Z up. Check it out!

    Well a small update. I have started swapping things from my 350 to the 361 and am getting ready to pull the tranny to have it rebuilt. Got a few things from summit. Today alone i got my B&M Supercooler and a Tranny Temp and Oil Pressure Gauges from Auto Meter. They are the Z series. Ill try to get some pics and post them. Just been very busy lately. -Matt
