This is my summer project. I had a spun bearing in my last engine, so I
figured why not go 4.3? lol. Anyways, I'm sure people will say why waste
money on a 6, well thats what I wanted to do. Dont like it, oh well. I
put alot of time and sweat into this engine. Cam specs are .555/.580
218/224dur 112lsa. The idle needs to be adjusted, it wants to die
sometimes, but thats just a tuning issue
