Glhs, clean looking truck, got me wondering if I can swap a serpintene setup onto my 80, did serpintene setup on my sons v8 converted s10 and I really like it, and looking at your engine I think I would like it on the front of mine as well...

I have a Magnum engine.

You would have to swap the timing cover which means you lose the mechanical fuel pump and the cover won't fit unless you install a special bolt/spacer from Hughes Engines if you want to keep the long nose cam. There are a couple bolt holes in the Magnum heads that are not present on the early heads. If those bolt holes are the only ones that are holding you up, don't worry, I've seen the swap done with early heads.

Magnum intakes are available for carbs. Magnum replacement heads are available with LA engine intake pattern already drilled. A magnum head swap would be a MAJOR gain in HP/TQ from stock '80 model cylinder heads.

looks good man, whered you get the braided hoses?
There Normal rubber hoses with a Mr Gasket brand stainless steel braided cover kit. I found one cheap at the local O'rileys because it was missing a clamp.

Here's todays work. Pay no attention to the silver overspray from the manifold paint, i cleaned that off the grime thats allready there( it's got some oil leaks it's had sence new). I had to drill and pin the K&N filter to the tube so it would stay put.




looks brand new inside.
