I dont even know where to start. All 3 motors getting freshened. New cams ,lifters valvetrains, figured since i lost 1 motors lifter the other 2 arnt far behind. Bottom ends getting rings ,bearings,oil pumps and timing sets. There dart tall decks pro1 heads and 8-71's. Also upgraded all 3 motors efi to the new holley super sniper dual quad setups pretty excited to see how that goes. As for hull,15" garmin next to a 12" garmin. Getting rid of all the gauges to modernize the dash. All 3 xrs getting checked out hopefully not much wear and just a seal job. But really debating on selling them and going imco scx. Thoughts?

Well since almost every part I need is 12-14 weeks out might as well call boating season 2022 a bust.
It`ll be a miracle if I get anything done.

LET`S GO BRANDON!!!

And that's how my project started last year.. All of a sudden I had a hull with only wiring left in it.. I had my Xr's gone through and then sold them after deciding I had better go to SCX's after changing my mind and adding the new 3.8 whipples. I also added drive guardians for some extra insurance.

Got the floor finished up, just the tank mounts left to cut out and glass in. Removed the fugly paint from the tanks and polished them, not quite where I want them yet. Early spring hope to get the power in and fired.
