Thats what the 1/2" plate is for i still have to make the holes then ill round the corners. I tried to email you back but its full and wont let me delete any off with the phone. We built my buddy the same motor with a 292 comp cam for his yj sounds and runs good

You mean the same engine as my 355, or the 355 you built? (vortec headed?)
I'm gonna take swatson454's advice and swap out my Melling cam, before I put it in anything else. Probably be a comp or lunatti. I want more low end off idle torque, not worry so much about the high rpm. In the Camaro we were in a foot brake class, leaving off a stock convertor. It still launched about 1800-1900. Don't need that in the CJ.

I need to take some pics of the bumper I'm gonna build. I had some tread plate bent for my rockers, but he bent the first set wrong. So he gave me all of them free of charge (the right ones and the wrong ones). I'm gonnna use a left over peice of 2x4 tubing and lay the treadplate on, like a step bumper. Box it in nice, put on the shackle mounts,to help get ya out of that lake

Lol.. Its a vortec headed 355. He hasnt had any problem with lowend running the 292. It ia a little bigger than most people would run in a jeep but he wanted it to hit so thats what i gave him. What do i know mine is a 300/306 roller.

What intake and carb does he run?

I have several Holleys to choose from, 600, a couple 650's, a 750 double pump, 600 or 650? spread bore(forget on that one). a couple edelbrocks (but I hear they suck for off road). Even have a quadrajet (unsure what size that is).

Edelbrock intake started out with a 650 holley it would not function off road so i had an old quadrajet rebuilt it and it has never acted goofy yet.
