grandpav10 is on a distinguished road

new member here. I have my old 95 dodge i drove as a company truck for the place i worked for, one day i got a call to come pick " Grandpa" up. Never got the story on the reason why its called that but i stuck with it. haha.
So i am fed up with the 47rh, my truck has a spicer 70 one legger (wtf).
So my plans are to rebuild the magnum v10. Coupled to a nv4500 5 speed. my gear ratio is a 3.50 so i have been able to get 18mpg going from Boise,id to Gooding, Idaho.
My plans are for a bottom end redo to get rid of the 8:5:1 cr and bump it to 11:1. from what i have heard, the cam profile stock is one of the worst configurations. i bought a first generation viper intake since the torque is the same on the viper v10 and the truck v10, so i figured it couldnt hurt. ive been wondering how to port the monstrosity of an intake on the truck. any tips would be good. going with a set of ross or kb pistons, porting heads. and new cam. headers are going on it as well. not sure what i will do as far as rockers and such. but the auto has to go. went to jalopy jungle to pull the clutch assembly out of a truck ( 25 bucks ) so i got all that. need to find a 5 speed for the old guy now. 24 year old and this is my 6th dodge truck, the others had easily modifiable 318s and one dog of a 360.
