Well, didnt get them done by lunch...1st head, tb, intake were all done, but then i pulled the valves out of the 2nd head.......it eas cracked bad

But the great news is a friend had a running 360 that was pulled out of a wrecked 2001 and he sold it to me for $400!
Today i ordered a flexplate to let me bolt it up in the 98 and it should be in by the end of the week.

After I port one of these heads (same casting numbers) ill be bolting everything back on the 360 and dropping it in lol id better be able to feel a difference when im done this swap!

oh wow thats awesome lol I wanted to do a 360 swap in my truck for a long time but I decided to wait until this 5.2 goes lol can the 5.2L tranny handle the 5.9? someone had told me it could no but maybe he was wrong and the flexplate fixes that all up.

I'm probably just going to piddle tonight on it cause i just can't take this heat, but i have off friday so i can get out in the garage late tomorrowevening and work all night when it cools down. Gotta love a three day weekend, three day work week, then another three day weekend!
