Tires are 3x10.50 15 super swampers & the seats are out of a minivan ( Chrysler) Thank you for the kind words,  itís in fantastic condition, Iíve got the thing tore apart right now adding Spartan lockers front & rear, add a leafs up front,  adding aftermarket heater and having the seats done in red & black leather , then stereo and speakers .... itís a money pit lol

For some reason they look bigger to me. Whatever they are, they look good on there.

what are the specs on your cam??
unless you plan to run at 6500 rpm constantly (like a circle track racer) triple valve springs are just going to cause more friction.

1600 clutch??  not ceramic I hope?

Iím not positive on the cam specs. The former owner was a machinist and had Lunati custom grind the cam & he set up the head and custom ground the larger valves & ported the head. No itís not ceramic

I see you have plans for fuel tank. Do you want the correct fuel tank rather than something in your bed?

I donít know for sure yet, I have a new fuel cell here but I hate giving up precious bed space, I may build a square tubing frame and mount this fuel cell under the bed...... ?
