              Thanks guys, I don't think I've been on this site since some time in 2020. I tend to just follow a fee builds on social media and the bird progress stalled for a bit so didn't have much to report.

              I look forward to getting back to some of your build threads and see where things are at!

              I need to stop in to the Chassis shop this week and will post any updated pics if there has been progress.

              I also ordered these stepped lip Forgeline wheels in 19 x 10.5 and 20 x 13. I'll run a 295 35 19 and 345 30 20 now that the mini tub is done.

              Side note (and caution Ford related) we picked up a 21 Bronco Big Bend for my wife's daily and we both absolutely love it.

                That rear end torque arm looks really nice, can you share some more pictures? It's on my wishlist as future upgrade.

                  Some years back I helped a buddy build up a stroker based on a 400 block using aluminum main caps. When the block was finished align boring, it came back .003" out of round. I recommended using a different shop to start with because I knew a lot of work from this one came out not so good but my bud said it would fine and when the block came back with the mains out of round, he was going to start assemble and had to tell him no way. This engine had an Indy top end and pushed his 3600+ lbs brick 9.28 best with a small shot of the funny gas but it wasn't an easy build. Seemed nothing was built to fit Mopars back then. Even the dang valve covers had to have some mill work done other than making some clearance for the MSD distributor. Checked for distributor clearance after reading about them not clearing then had to more work because there wasn't room to put a wrench on the VC nuts! And the list goes on from there. Are things still like that these days?? This was back in 2005....

                    I'll grab some more pictures next time I'm in the shop. I used a Speedtech arm and had the Chassis shop build to suit. Speedtech is just now designing a kit for B Bodies ( with a wicked pro touring Superbird project) If you're interested in a Torque Arm setup I would keep an eye out for that kit or reach out to Speedtech. They seem to do it better than anyone
