Default it runs, it drives, and it's boosted my 85

Well after 3 years i can finally drive my truck. here is some "finished" photos.
still need to make my way to the dyno to have a good tune built, running the pimp ecu i have it tuned rather rich just trying to get some miles on the fresh motor.

Amazing looking truck, just curious what radiator you have in it?
I have an 84' 2wd long box 5.0 minus the turbo and I had to hack up a explorer radiator to fit after a few fans went through the stock one.

Its a smaller aluminum one cruising without the hood on my running temp is ~180 with a 8in fan. The extra size of the expo radiator would be nice.

His could be custom, but US Body Source sells them. There was another place I saw them online as well, but I think they may have been the same hoods if not the same company.
