    That sounds great, and I totally get it.
    The appearance of the 4VFI units is just so attractive, that configuration, a cross ram, is impressive looking to begin with, and my imagination just jumped to that image.
    Sounds like an awesome build!
    To me, a Daytona or Superbird should be built with all of the benefits modern suspension technology can offer, and I would have a built 'Bird with a 5 or 6 speed standard transmission and an appropriate rear end gear for acceleration in the lower gears but a 200 MPH top end...
    If I had one...
    And I wasn't going for all original...
    Like if it was far gone from original or a clone.
    :D

    That's what my plan for this car,when I saw this car for sale on Moparts,I was planning on buying a used Hellcat Challenger,but this project caught my eye. I knew that the Daytona aero package was good for over 200 MPH,and so is the modern Nascar chassis. I already had the Hemi,so it seemed like a no brainer for me. The crazy idea of having a 200 MPH Nascar street driven Hemi Daytona really seemed possible!

            It's still Christmas time for the Daytona stock car! My new MSD Pro Billet distributor, and FiTech hyper fuel fuel pump system came in to feed the dual quad fuel injection system! My spark plug wires are still being shipped. 20181229_152656.jpg 20181229_152705.jpg 20181229_152518.jpg 20181229_152757.jpg

              When I got to the bottom of the box from Summit Racing, I found that they sent me a Hellcat too! 20181229_160330.jpg 20180729_125639.jpg

                Yesterday I ordered an aluminum high volume water pump and housing kit with the billet water neck,and a billet rear main seal kit from Mancini Racing. I also found out that my 10 mm plug wires have been shipped from the manufacturer. I should have almost everything to build the Hemi. I will probably be ordering a March serpentine belt pulley set,a modern Mopar alternator, and a mini starter,for the accessories needed to dyno the engine.
