twins... decisions!!(The Green Goblin Build)
Ok guys so I am putting a box366/73/.91 on this week to hold me over until I get my new compound setup figured out and built. My question is, should i keep my current 62/65/12 and run a s475 under it or sell the 62 and build a 64/480? I don't tow much. A few times a year maybe and i wanna make good power to 700-800 ish. It is my daily driver and has been great so far. I ran a set of compounds for a while before my 62 and LOVED then so I am definetely building a bigger set just not sure what way I wanna go. Any help would be great guys!
UPDATE AS REQUESTED: Just wanna update the OP on the progression and path that I have chosen and I am now pursuing on this setup. What originally began as a simple charger swap, on my now previous 03 CR truck, which was only to hold me over until I decided on a compound setup to build. Ideas were tossed around and tossed around and I decided on a 62/480 setup originally. Well, as usual plans changed as I liked my single box 366 and had the truck UDC tuned and setup for what made one HE!! of a street truck/ DD. Hooked the sled few times surprised me against some good strong trucks. Then I started to get tired of having a truck that needed more body work due to rust in this ohio salt winters and weather so I decided to strip it of its parts and sell to a local guy at a decent price for a decent truck.
Things were quite for a while as I quietly gathered, bought, traded, sold, bought, bought new and used parts for a new engine that I had acquired from a local shop I am good friends with. I had bought a 06 engine that had a sleeve installed in the #1 cylinder and the others were cleaned up to keep the factory bore. I also picked up 2 03' engine both needing rebuilt for spare parts and use for mock up parts ill be fabricating. And so began the new build. I am shooting for HP in the mid 900's and maybe to touch 4 digits just for gigs and bragging rights. this engine will eventually go into a truck that I have not yet bought or started looking for yet but when the time comes and I find the right truck I will. this will be my daily driver truck and play truck which I will not be towing with very rarely and light.
Here is a run down of what I have planned for the engine build AKA "The Green Goblin":

This is all I have so far I am sure I missed something and if I have and notice it or you guys notice it let me know. I hope this helps you guys that were curious or that were asking about certain info on the build. I will be running an auto trans in the next truck and if I was guessing it will probly be sent to Lavon at firepunk seeing how I am only 2 hrs southeast from there. But that will come later down the road. Again I hope this helps and let me know if I missed anything or have any questions!
