    What have i gotten my self into . I am building this truck for my :dizzy:daughter. I think this is some form of mid life crisis on my part. The truck is a mint body 1977 c 10 and i am putting it on a 1976 K5 blazer chassis. it has a 6 inch lift kit . 35 inch supper swampers boggers. Now i am in the middle of installing a Tune port injection. its a challenge for me but it is coming along nicely. I will post some pics

    she is learning . last weekend we where installing the 4.10 gears and the locker rear end.I have the tune port running. But i think i have a bad maf sensor . all it does is idle and it wont start unless I un plug it.

    just wanted to add a couple pics. the tune port runs great. we installed the 4.10 locker rear ,some bogger tires on some cheap used wheels. she has been painting all weekend lol she has paint all over her.
    It was a shame the cab i pulled off the K5 frame was my brothers he loved this truck. it was a 1973 with factory a/c. but it was junk.
