Finally put the truck back on the ground and took it out for its maiden voyage,just running around the doors for a couple of miles to get it up to temp then back to the house for the first 'HOT' head retorque.
First run out was fun ,I retorqued the head then ran all the valve clearances again then buttoned it back up.
Took it for a second run and it all seems good,rolled into it a bit with part throttle acceleration and I'm very impressed with it.
A couple more pictures.
