Jared has a nice 4×4 project here that visitors might find interesting.  This is a Blueprint engines 383 TBI with the world heads option.  If you have any questions for him his email is jarbird67@hotmail.com and he would love to tell you about his truck.

Jared Quote:

The truck is a 1988 GMC 1500K that was stolen from me while I was at school at WSU.  I bought the truck back from the insurance company with the truck completely stripped.  I have worked on it for the last three years ground up and made it something    worthy again.  For a first timer working with fuel injection, the tbi was relatively easy, however it can be anal at times.  If you can get past the anal aspects of the engine and work around them, it’s quite a nice setup.  This    motor fired up the first try and quickly when it was time to fire it up for the very first time.  I was impressed to say the least.
