    When you are dead, you don’t know you are dead. It is difficult only for others. It is the same way when you are stupid.

    Connecting rod through the block under the right side motor mount.

    Yes, I had the rear cooling mod.

    Intercooler pumping with key on.

    It's time was up. 11 years of supercharged fun. I have a Teksid engine to break down and build up.

    The transmission has been needing a rebuild for 5 years now, everything has 135,000 spirited miles on it. Time for a reset.

    I am searching for a forged rotating assy. I would like a Kellogg crank, I think. You all have done this before, so I am open to suggestions and recommendations. I would love to get after those pesky Hellcats. It will likely require a late shot of Nitrous. I have a terrible traction issue.

    Joe,
    Built my 5.3 stroker with Manley crank & rods using a Boss 5.0 block. Could not justify spending $4000 putting sleeves in a stock block & wanted to build the biggest stroker motor I could. Paid $1500 for the Boss block. Any way you do it prepare to spend some coin. Coming from foxbody 5.0 world myself I was stunned at what it cost to put one of these things together. Could have built 3 comparable 302's for what I spent on this engine.
