Didn't take any pics but I pulled the accessory drive, water pump, crank pulley and timing cover off and advanced my cam. It was installed at 112-2 and now it's at 112+4 so 6 degrees of advance. Exhaust note seems a little more crisp which i wasn't expecting. Now I just need to datalog with FRP

Did some tweaking of my TB and that fixed a lot of my little tuning/drivability problems. Should make Ryan's job a lot easier. Truck drives awesome though now with the new motor

Changed the oil pump gears in the V10. This time with the right gears but no joy, oil pressure still low.

Looks pretty good! What size of tires are you using?

For me, the ole girl's been seeing a lot more action over the last couple months. The Honda's exhaust went to hell and finally got her through the exhaust shop to get it all sorted. Then, a week later, the alternator decided to give up the ghost, so I'll have the "pleasure" of sorting that out this weekend.

Made two trips to the local Menard's for roofing shingles, carrying ~1,000 pounds per trip. Not particularly noteworthy, but my rear shocks are T-O-A-S-T. Truck still rode surprisingly nice and the ole 360 didn't hardly notice they were back there to begin with, even going up the hills.

I learned that weekend that roofing really, REALLY sucks.

Also, this guy arrived in the mail the other day...
