stock lt with those mods is likely 400, but more tuned for low end power that you feel. if it had forced induction before they are normally faster top end.

The only thing I would need to put her back to */C is the */C itself. Have the Blower Cam and the push rods for it still. Hopefully I can get the rear main seal buttoned up by next Wednesday so she can go finish getting tuned and get her into at least 2 colors. Right now I only get to work on her 45 mins a day over my lunch break since I'm technically not allowed to work on a gasser in Diesel Class. I'd drop the trans in the parking lot, but I'd rather use the lift and trans jack. I'm a little worried the clutch might be oil soaked. It didn't act like it, but you never know. It'* only a year old and has less than 1000 miles on it.

if the clutch was oil soaked it would start slipping in high gear driving down the road 55+.

I'm pretty sure she'* good then lol. I've had her well above that before I parked her and I cruised her 65 for 5 miles without any slippage.

Got the trans out minus the bell housing. Talk about oily. Should have everything pulled and the right main seal on its way along with the new starter

Welp, She'* now getting a Stage 4 Competition Clutch. The Stage 2 Ram clutch was toast. It should be here in the next 2 weeks. That'll give me time to install the front Hide-a-Plate and get the oil cleaned up. Gonna make sure everything is tight that is easier to get to without the trans in.

Previous owner rode the clutch I'm seeing. The oil didn't help.
