I've upgraded the truck's engine, transmission, and other powertrain parts to give it better performance and extend the life of the truck. Here's what I've done so far:

-383 stroker engine, vortec heads
-Edelbrock multipoint fuel injection system, 29#/hr injectors
-Gibson stainless headers
-Holley throttle body with 2" bores
-Built 4L60E transmission
-Gibson single 3" exhaust

-Intake porting
-Eaton Posi limited slip differential
-4.10:1 gears
-Flex-A-Lite electric cooling fans
