Both are nice rides.... both have qualities in their respective areas. Your rams brand new, so looking good is easy. But that Chevy ..... she's in great shape. Whats under the hood?

Thank guys,

The K5 fenders say 350 because It started life as a 350 but its now a built to the hills 383 stroker with an unbreakable th400 trans. Those two paired with 4.56 gears and a 2300 stall torque converter make it pretty quick. It may be neck and neck with the r/t off the line but it tops out at 80mph because of the 4.56 gears. I intended to lift it 6 inches and slap some 35s on it but now that I have the r/t I'm putting that on the back burner.

It was either buy the r/t or drop a stroked 454 big bock in the k5 and keep driving my 99 jimmy for a daily driver. Obviously I got the r/t

heres some pics of the engine:

Right after final assembly, those yellow wires had to go

all dirty and neglected...

Beautiful! That looks almost identical to the 383 I built for my old 86 Chevy.

Thanks!

I love that 383 but the way its built and the cam that's in it, its made for a street car, It makes almost all of its power in high rpm, I had to limit it to 7500 rpm, it would spin 8000 all day, that worried me a little lol

Still does awesome in the mud though

Well yesterday I ordered blacked out tail lights and a blacked out third brake light plus all the leds ill need to make everything brighter due to the dark lens. And I ordered a tri fold tonneau cover. That stuff should be here sometime this week. After that I'm gonna get my halo headlights and hid fog lights, maybe tint the fogs. I bought a can of plast dip for the ram emblems but I'm hesitant on doing it because its been done so many times beifore.

I've always loved the look of the spoilers on the daytona rams...wondering if there are r/t versions out there...
