    Default 1998 dime 2wd v8 build

    I bought me a 1998 dime 2wd with a 4.3 auto. I bought to drive while my white silverado is in the shop. So after I get my white truck back I'm goin to drop the dime put a 350 in it and a sound system in it.


    Im goin goin to start the motor since I already have an extra 350. The motor will be built.

    Eagle 383 rotating assembly with 9.7:1 comp

    Does it ride good afterwards? I went with the Belltech kit cause my buddy that is redoin the motor in my silverado put the kit on am his 01 s10 and it rides and drives better then stock. I'm wantin a 4/5" or a 5/6" kit but can't find any kits

    Food for thought. The parts your looking at through lmc can be had at andysautosport.com. Cheaper and they're the same brand or better 99% of the time. Good folks to deal with. I've ordered lots of parts from them
