FYI I love that you wanna keep and mod the L16, we are a select few... I love matching numbers for some reason that's why I chose to build my L16 over a motor swap... I'm surprised someone hasn't told you to swap the motor yet... seems to be the trend. I will say getting all the extra power out of an l16 takes time and money but it is possible....

So do you not like SU carbs? I hear you can make good power with them.. just wondering... I have a single weber 40dcoe on my engine, really nice carb, but I never even held and SU, nevermind tuning one....

Anyhow you mentioned some sss stuff, what head is on the motor?... that's gonna be the biggest key to making power with the L16...
Pm if you'd like more details or for any extra info I learned while building my motor. Or I can respond here but I didnt wanna clutter your build post talking about my stuff....
Keep up the good work...

Nice build so far, love the 510's, I think my 521s was that same color originally.... so did you get the motor built yet?... are you still deciding?...
just curious on your hp hopes.... your hopes seem a little high for at the wheel numbers but possible for at the crank....
I saw one guy post 104 at the wheels which means approximately 130 at the crank....
I've build my motor a bit and I'm showing 90 at the wheels, 105 at the crank... and I haven't even tuned it... hoping for another 10hp when finished...
Here's a couple charts....

I can only hope mine turns out as clean...
So far i only pulled the wires I need to into the engine bay, enough so I could start my motor.. now I need to hide and cover things.

Truck just screams character.... personally I love the dents with a patina like that.... but damn that bumper has to go.... I can only imagine how much one of those bumpers weighs.... sweet truck...

Actually other way....no that black was my doing.... original color is that beige color underneath..... I painted the whole truck about 15 years ago with 20 cans of 99cent flat black from homedepot....
