The first vid sounded better than the second vid. In fact the 1st vid sounded really good for a 3/4 motor (v6).

well tis always hard to get a good sound out of the computer you would have to hear it in person. in person it sounds more v8 than anything. also going down the road it sounds v8. but there will be a v8 in there after this summer. :mullet:

Blue smoke means oil. Since you haven't started it in a while you just narrowed it down. If you have a plenium(not sure if 6's do) it is leaking and or valve seals are bad.

i understand and thank you. this engine was rebuilt and actually i had just replaced all the seals and all about 2 weeks ago. i was having the real blue smoke before cause i didnt have it sealed good enough but all it is is when you start your truck for the first time of the day you have that white smoke thats about it. i repect your help and cameras are gay when it comes to getting the real deal of your vehicle its always best in person.

Nope, I liked the sound of the 1st vid more than the second because it sounded like a v-6 pickup and not an old log truck.

V-8 sounds much similar to this, http://www.youtube.com/user/ebodymopar#p/u/7/grCyzjcT368 or this, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DERmELghbTY&NR=1 , or this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tk58NZNHGfs , Not this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jrsIzGl_J70 . No excuses for how this guys v-8 sounds. You might want to play vid #2 and 4 at the same time, you can tell the diference. Good Luck on that engine swap, I have 3 engines to reconfigure and swap this summer, a 426ci Small Block for my sons 88 Ram, a 363ci for the yellow truck in the vid and a 440ci Small Block for my '96 Dakota (that has a V-6 in it now with stock exhaust)

I'm not trying to dis your truck, just adding my comments about what I like in sound. That is why they sell 45 different set ups for our trucks, so we can each obtain a sound we like. But a V-6 will always be a V-6 and will sound as such, just like a Honda car with a Coffee Can will still Sound Like a Honda with a Coffee Can.

Oh yeah, in the Second video when it cranked initially it was smoking, might want to run a quick compression check and if that is OK, then have the heads done to replace the dry rotted valve seals and worn valve guides.

seals are all brand new. swapped out the intake manifold and replaced new seals all around even on the heads. so if i am burning oil then i dont know why.
