    Remember with a 4 speed some loss of low end torque is acceptable. Higher rpm and the bigger powerband is a slight tap of the clutch away, and a launch rpm is whatever you want it to be, so go with the cam that will give you the longest consistent powerband you can get with the limitations of...

    Green bearing install

    I have done it both ways at home and taken to a shop, just be ready when they pop if you are using a press only! I found it was way easier to go to my local garage on a Saturday with a 30 pack and let them do the next set.:drinks:

    CalTrac's or Assassin Bars

    Those are sweet 60's on street tires!! I am not doing any "real" street racing just stoplight stuff and I was launching consistently hard left (well a strong drift anyway) with the cal trac I have been able to correct that and am not worried about a "Mustang doughnut" when I get on it.

    The Black Ghost , Great Watch

    Its all about the story a mystery that reappeared form time to time and dominated the streets it drove on. It grew into a local legend that spread across the country.

    Any recommendations on header back exhaust systems?

    FWIW I would go as far as to blindly recommend the TTI system for your application. I have never owned the year in question but the several TTI Systems I have installed on 68-72 b bodies leaves no doubt as to the consistent quality of there products. My latest set of TTI's were installed on a 69...
