Thanks Jon, I wish I had more time to commit to this build but I've been too busy with work and not enough time in the garage. That will be changing and I'm going to try and get these ports knocked out and drop the head back off to Tony in the next couple weeks. How's your engine running? Have you talked with Tony lately? I recently told him about the supercharger and sounded excited lol. Gear heads

Trust me I know how it goes, plan on three times your time frame and twice your budget. Haven't had any reason to stop by Tony's just finally got the trans back in a week or so ago. I'm hoping for some dry roads tomorrow To get it out for a function check. If its all good Im gonna take it back down to try and clean up some loose ends and half finished stuff. Hope to have it all ready for when the weather brakes.

It Wouldn't Be A Project If Everything Worked Right.

Yep all truth, but it's still a "fun" project and I always look fw to the days or nights that I can be out in the garage with the music blasting and tools blaring. I'm really looking fw to reassembly, I'm going to start ordering some parts to help motivate me lol.

Glad you have that trans finished up, your drivetrain should be solid now.

Only as solid as a locked Dana 35 can be.

Anyone have any other good recommendations or good experiences?

Very nice I've also heard many excellent reviews. I'm assuming you are having an electrician install the larger amp fuse and wires? Or do u already have an outlet?

Getting a 220v 50a outlet in your garage is the best if you want to weld and or be warm in winter

Looks badass! I've been using my remington 25,000 - 50,000 btu propane torpedo this winter and it does the job and then some, but I want something that I can set to run at a particular temp and keep things from freezing when im not there. I have a friend that has one of those Fahrenheat units in his 2 1/2 car garage and it has the entire garage warmed up from 20 degrees to upper 60s within an hour (with thermostat off). This thing would be major overkill in my single car garage but I'm still going to pull the trigger on this soon.

I totally agree and a welder is actually next on my list of tools to buy, I've wanted one for years and actually came really close to buying a Miller MIG/TIG unit. The issue with wiring 220v in my garage is that the fuse box is located in my condo and I will need to fish the larger wiring up through the existing case which travels from my garage up across the hallway, and into my unit (which is adjacent to the garage hallway 1st level). I'm planning on fishing the wires through myself and then having my friend who is a certified electrician that I can have help with adding the breaker to the the fusebox. I think that's what's really holding me back from buying that heater, just the fact that I can't really install the wiring on my own pisses me off lol.

yep, I couldn't agree more! Did you find your AEM FIC-6 unit? Let me know once you do and I can shoot you a payment when you are ready to ship it

I have a single car. Uninsulated garage. This should be plenty for me 😃

Just pulled the trigger on a brand new in box AEM FIC-6 unit from CobraMarty. I was already planning on purchasing this unit and happened to find out that Marty had one that he was willing to sell me that was new in box and never used, made specifically for our jeeps (#1913), thanks Marty! This will allow me to have full tuning access and I will be able to take advantage of all the little things that will add up to more power (larger injectors, oversized valves, custom high flowing cylinder head, and other supporting mods).

I will need to start researching and preparing for this step so I will be ready when the time comes to tune the stroker
