Yeah, those are the GM tube/stick. Same thing, both take slight modification to make them work, but get the job done. Going to work on the battery mount now, will take a few pics of that, want to use all the stock style hardware.

Braille mounting. I used the stock location/ modified holddown. Sturdy, works great.

First, I trimmed the tire inflator holder foam thingy, in such a way that the battery fit into it. This gives the battery about a 1 inch height boost, so its snug against the hold down rail. It also holds the battery from lateral movement, and the foam will help cushion it against shock.



Here's how it fits in there bare, I added some foam pieces in front of the battery to wedge it in there good.


You can see the cutouts I made around where the battery posts are on the battery. While the positive side is shielded by the plastic cover, better safe then sorry. I trimmed both sides with a grinder, just in case. It's ugly, but its functional. You could certainly do a much neater job if you were so inclined.


And with both battery cables connected, complete. Piece of cake.

Some shots of the Mast black label stroker windage tray. Fantastic fit, tucks in the oil pan, pickup doesnt haev to be bent or moved at all, tons of clearance even on my big stroke (good to 4.25"), and proper oil control. Worth the $60 and backorder wait.

This is what I'm waiting on, all coming with the heads in the final package before the engine goes in the car (along with a ported oil pump and YT6670s from Vengeance). Heads got serialized yesterday, just waiting on the exhaust valve/bowls cut and it's done. Delays delays delays, but supposedly they are shipping on Monday.

Vengeance Racing came through with some Yella Terra's for me. These things are hella NICE. Now if only Texas Speed would get me the rest... patiently waiting.

i believe they are same ones i have...one problem i had was after about 200 miles , i started to get a tapping noise...finally ripped down pass side and removed them and installed oem and motor was quiet...for 200 miles..meanwhile could not see anything happening when they were on car...clearance was so close to head..could not see any marks with the naked eye, using a magnifying glass , i found 2-3 that had microscopic marks that were different then the rest,,,deciding to polish all of them in this location , and removed very small edge area with emory cloth..reinstalled 2000 miles ago and noise has never returned...the hit spot was at top area of head where rocker dipped in towards intake...just thought i would throw that out there...in case you come across it down the road
