'88 Stroker Build

My 4.2L was old and tired, so that came out and I'm putting a 4.7L stroker in. The engine has been mated to an NV3550 and I rebuilt the NP231 T-case. Also in this build, I'm installing a new dash, new gauges, and adding a dual battery system connected to a Blue Sea Systems automatic charging relay. The engine and transmission are in and the tedious job of wiring has begun.

Awesome. That dash looks great! I was almost hoping you were going to leave it aluminum, but is it painted or powdercoated?

Thanks.....it's powder coated. I liked the unfinished aluminum and almost kept it that way, up ended up getting it powder coated.

So far so good. Runs really strong. The Holley Sniper is so easy to use!

I used this https://www.holley.com/products/fuel.../parts/550-511

I originally had a FiTech, but couldnít get the damn thing to tune. Should have gone with the Holley from the start.
