    Most cost effective transmission build for 600 or 700hp turbo drag car

    5.7L hemis can be found for relatively affordable prices - even the 2009+ Eagle headed ones. For Transmission you can go with a built 727 with no OD to keep the price down - or you could even go with a dime-a-dozen GM 4L80E and have a huge aftermarket support and electronically controlled. While...

    '68-'70 Decor Coupe B-pillar mldgs

    Not much help but I needed some for my old 68 RR Coupe and I ended up buying some at the Spring Fling swap meet for like $75 back in 2011 I did a quick look as well and didn't find any currently listed. Usually when I find things that are not very common it is "use your best judgement" on...

    Begging for attention

    Nice! I ended up with the 9.3 compression so if I decide to ditch the blower it wouldn't be a complete slug.

    Begging for attention

    Second Keyway = Check Scattershield = Check - will be running a factory bellhousing with the 4bbl setup but have a scattershield for when the blower goes on.

    Same with my Polara... which is why I will most likely just leave it off - cant bring myself to cut a rust free hood

    Begging for attention

    The compression ratio comes out to right at 9.33 and I plan on running a mild 6-8psi... so I have a pulley set up for about 7.27% overdrive to start - should be an anemic 5-6 psi but I can always go up from there.

    Well guys I fail to make much progress on my 64 Polara - mostly due to the Russian thing, the Job thing, Corona thing... Anyway - Finally getting some small progress - got the 440 together and some induction mocked up. This was a 1969 440 block, forged crank, forged pistons, and nothing...

    Contemplating a new engine conversion

    Originally swapped my 6.1L into my 68 Charger back in 2008... things have come a long way since then. Getting the engine physically in the car is a bolt in affair - if you want you can go the "old" route and run a A518 or a TF727 with Gear Vendors... Or run the modern trans... or...

    Scored a little project

    Well keeping on with this for those who care... Scored some 6.1L heads and plan on dropping my block off to my machinist in a couple weeks - this will determine what the one hurt cylinder will clean up at as the kit I am looking at allows for either +0.010" or +0.025" - Seeing how bad the...

    San Bernardino/Riverside County Machine Shop Recommendation

    Just to put some skin in the game - I went through several local machine shops when I worked at the resto shop and we ended up working with TG's Performance now located in Gardena (too far for you guys but just putting him out there). He (Tony) has done no less than 30 engines over the years for...

    Just found this Hemi swap forum - My Hemi Swap 68

    negative brother - the factory A/C box already has the nut attached to the tube coming out of the box - so you need the fitting pictured above to connect to it. So in short the fittings are very much around and making the lines are not difficult especially when you have the crimping tool...

    Just found this Hemi swap forum - My Hemi Swap 68

    The pressure switch should just be wired between the triggering relay and the compressor - this essentially deactivates the A/C system if there is a pressure issue. The factory firewall fittings are IIRC a 10 and a 6 or something like that. The -10 should use a normal o-ring fitting that is...

    Holley Hemi swap parts

    Guess TTI got their shit together after I got my headers... had to ding mine in a few spots to fit.

    Holley Hemi swap parts

    I'm still waiting on Holley to get back to me with what oil pan i need from them... haha is the only difference the cocking of the pickup tube? I mean the pans are all the same correct?

    Just found this Hemi swap forum - My Hemi Swap 68

    As others have stated - I went to Classic Auto Air and got an assortment of lines/fittings but I also scored a hydraulic line crimping tool for like $40 so I just crimp my own --- slightly more work than taking it to a hydraulic shop but it's more than paid for itself

    ‘68 Charger 392 gen3 build

    If you're going to run the factory K-member that oil filter is going to be problems... the best/easiest way is either go to a remote mounted filter or run the 45* adapter to clear everything down there. Also - if you're running the car accessory drive you may want to trim the power steering...

    PAW superstock camshaft specs

    I ran the 290/300 cam in a 440 back when they were still around - PAW was about a 30 minute drive from me - always fun going there.

    Scored a little project

    I mean I could do that - in hindsight - running an aftermarket supercharger may make more sense from a money standpoint... but we will see. I have a hellcat timing cover and a spare 6.1L timing cover - going to mock it all up and see what's what. I already have the hellcat SC but if its going...

    Scored a little project

    I have heard that - I am looking for the 6.4L Apache heads as they are, from what I've seen, are essentially the same exact used on the Hellcat with some minor changes (intake bolt pattern) - I know Edelbrock is releasing their Gen III heads and are drilled for both a traditional intake and the...
