Guess who's belt is squeaking again! This guys!!! I talked to the dude at Advance Auto. If I return both of my crappy belts, he'll refund the money for store credit, then order me a Gates belt in the same flavor. While I was at Advance, I had them test the battery. It looks like the parasitic drain from the old alternator that killed it over night (more than once) did a number on it. It won't hold a charge properly. Thank goodness for that warranty... New belt and battery next week.

On a side note... I started the Jeep for the guy testing the battery. That elicited a "That sounds good, man!" from him. I revved it up to about four grand and got "**** that sounds good!" All in a days work.

On another side note... I'm about to leave good 'ol Virginia here in a couple months. I'll be stuck in nowhere Missouri for a long time. I'll be making a little more money than I do now, but I won't have anything to do. So I want to build an engine. A 408 stroker to be exact. I'm going to pick up a block when I get there (I think I already found one) and build it on a stand in the living room. I'll have the interior and suspension squared away by then making the motor the weakest link. This'll be my first V8 build from the bottom up.


I do have a dilemma. The choice is between building a 408 and building another bike. I'm sure the stroker would be fun and educational, but 100 mph on one wheel is fun, too. Decisions decisions...

150 on 4 wheels would be fun too. I'd say build a 408. But I wouldn't call a 5.9 the "weak link"

189 on a bike was beyond fun (on a closed track ). I think if I was a Buddhist, I would have found enlightenment.

With 233,000 miles on the stock block and internals, it's getting there. Especially when everything else is so new and shiny.

What trans would you put behind that? I know the 46re is stronger than the 44re, but I don't think it's that strong.

46re can be built pretty strong by a guy named Martian saine I believe is his name. There's alot of guys on the speed freaks with blown 5.9s and have a built 46re and it holds up pretty good

Edit: and I can't imagine a Built 408 would make much more power than a blown 360. But it might. I havnt looked at any numbers comparing each

Martin Saine. He has transmissions behind niners running low 12's. He has one 46re model that he sells rated to 700+ hp.

Mmmmmm yes please!!!! Or a nice turbo set up. Would be better for daily driving as your only in boost under load vs with a blower being drivin off the crank you will be in boost all the town. But either would be sick!!!

Twin turbo 408 would be appropriately insane.

Took a picture of it at work.


Then got it stuck... Friends don't let friends drive a 2WD niner with an open D35 in the rear. Got it out after careful application of momentum and torque management.
