The chain size is a 428 and the oddball thing about it is that you need 124 links... The standard 120 link chains are too short for stock gearing. If you change to "street" gearing and run a 45 tooth rear you can get away with the 120 link chain.
See thats what i'm talkin about! If I can get 5-10k on the stock setup, i can deal with how "horrible" it is lol great post
