Great Start & Congrats!

It is great to see a 6 cylinder being built up. For many years all I drove was 6 cylinder cars/trucks and they all had much torque. I look forward to following your build. After my warranty expires I will look at either a turbo or supercharger for mine. Great job!

428rwhp 511rwtq with 7 psi of boost was the last dyno there was a problem with tq number couldn't get it to read right which is a common problem for us v6ers. So tq may be off some.
