Hello from Arkansas!

Hey fellas! I've been a long time lurker on y'alls site and finally just decided to join it. I always go to it for searching reference material and such but anyhow. I'm from southern Arkansas and have pretty much gotten out of the racing scene a year or so ago since I don't have a shop at my new house anymore... and now just working on my 96 z71. I'm right in the middle of a 4l80e swap and getting all my ducks in a row to ditch the factory fi and go over to carb. I've always delt with fi but after my last build, 04 Ford Lightning with built motor and 3.4 Whipple Supercharger, I'm done with fi. Terrible experience with tuning and I swore I'd never have a vehicle I wasn't in control of the tuning with again... So my 96 z71 has almost 200k miles and I decided it was time to build a 383 and ditch the very hp limited fi setup. I have pretty much all my parts but will be needing some help and advice along the way. I'll be starting a cam selection thread very soon, prolly today to help tie up that loose end. Here a few pics

I'm in the southeast part of the state about 45 minutes from Louisiana. And yes I know exactly where Altus is. I need take one of the wine sample tours there lol. But I go through there every time I go to my father's, he lives in Fayetteville. Its like a whole other country up there, its beautiful, nice people, good economy, etc.... nothing but farm delta down here and free loaders drawing unemployment.
