Edelbrock aluminum heads, Edelbrock Intake, New Distributor. Full Crane Roller Valvetrain. Bottom end is .030 with flat top pistons and a RV cam. Stock TBI injection. The head gasket had a compression leak on the Ultimate Adventure that caused some issues on the long mountain passes, so why just replace when you can upgrade! Motor is cooled by a Flexalite SBC radiator with a 3000 CFM electric fan and shroud that is run off the motor sensor in the passenger head. Everything on the motor is new except the alternator. I would conservatively estimate the motor to be over 300HP but could easily do more if you wanted to do a custom tune.

I’m moving onto a new project and can’t have 2 rigs at a time. With a herniated disc in my back and a bad knee…it’s time to move onto an automatic based rig with ample seating for my family of 6. There is nothing I would change about this rig and would welcome the opportunity to hop in and drive it anywhere. I completed the 2018 Ultimate Adventure in this rig and it really brought me back to the enjoyment of just driving it and not towing. I just bought a trailer in spring of 2018 and have towed this rig 3x, but I really miss driving it…. I have a ton of pics at the attached IMGUR link and go to Motortrend or youtube and watch all of the 2018 Ultimate Adventure videos for plenty of wheeling action. Let me know if you have any questions or want specific pics!
