    at least you learned on the beater engine coming out!!

    My first engine swap was a V-8 S-10 deal. 2.8 didn't put up a fight like that, but I think the 350 was claustrophobic looking at that little, tiny engine bay. Anyway- the hoist was extended out and almost all the way up, and I was moving it to the side (not alot of lateral support) by myself... over she went. I was standing between the legs of the picker, under the boom when it went over. Oh yeah, the truck was well raised on stands at the time, compounding the height required to clear the core support.

    Nothing like a brand new 330hp engine tumbling off the front bumper, bouncing off the garage door, and hitting the floor.

    The bad part is that is was my brothers engine. I was trying to get ahead on the project while he decided to go out on the town... kids. He was mad at me for dropping his engine, I was mad at him for ditching on me. That was quite a shouting match.:realmad:

    LOL, it was pretty bad, motor turned out alright and got flogged on the dyno pretty good 386 hp @ 6000 rpm and 401 ft lbs at 3500 rpm

    the guy running the dyno said that if I let him run it over 6000 rpm that I could expect a 415 ish hp reading, but who the hell runs a big block @6500 rpm and besides I didnt want to blow the sucker up.

    now to find a fox bodied mustang to put it in and make a sleeper payup

    oh and she got some toys for that run, 750 cfm edelbrock carb, 4bbl intake, Aussie heads milled 10.5:1 compression, flowtech headers and new valve springs
