Ya it was pretty recently redone, I plan on taking the intake off soon just to have a look. But would like to get it on the engine stand first.

Just like the CST10's engine. Recently rebuilt, just a change or project plans for the owner. The exhaust valves were still clean in the ports it had been driven so little.

Good time to go 4 speed, just sayin'

This one apparently was the same way. His plans changed right after the rebuild that he hadn't even had the time to reinstall it. So since the rebuild hasn't even seen an engine bay. However it is out of an 83 truck which obviously weren't known for speed. It will be a torque monster but lack in the hp department. Have quite a few plans of parts to go on before putting it in. Would like to do a T5 swap but not wanting to spend the money plus the C4 has been rebuild not even 1000 miles ago.

Tomorrow it will be on the stand, forgot that most stores close early sundays and couldn't get to the hardware store in time for bolts.
