yeah sure.. you wouldnt need such a large plenum since you dont have a crossover of 4 more cylinders feeding in but the design will work.

What sucks is you have some clearance issues but I think for the amout of work that you've done -SO WHAT? It can be fixed. Some new pipe routing and it should be good to go! we're pulling for you, man.

ok i got pics and video but i was to busy with your mom's rearend to get mine finished.

here is the video, kyle (guy with dead sonoma, swaping to 5.3) recording, doug (joe dirt camaro) holding afr gauge, im the cool one inside the car you cant see.


here are some random pics kyle took.

here is me.. idk what im doing.


doug taking his battery back after the start.






i think i have a vacuum leak. and we kinda just threw some maps together to get it running. this was like the 5th start. it pretty much started on the first try.
