Holy cow what a sweet sound

i fired the brand new engine today and holy shit does it sound great. its got a 268s comp cam in with solid lifters and roller vortec heads with 58cc chambers 185 runners with 30 thou over bore and flat top pistons. should be around 10:1 compression and she sounds nice with the straight pipes on her. and i also have a 250 shot of nos on her to so i cant wait to see how much hp and torque i have at the rear wheels. with and without the nos.

On my way home
