    I’m putting a 6.4 with an 8hp70 in a 71 roadrunner. Have many of you taken this on before? If so, any pointers?

    Thanks for the link! Holley, it seems, has very little 71+ B-body stuff. I already have almost everything I think needed. Motor, transmission (out of a 2020 SRT Charger w/only 9k miles), RMS K member (on order), Mopar engine and Sound German transmission controller. I am a bit curious to see if many have done this in this body style. I have a USCT tunnel on the way. They are kind enough to help make the E-body tunnel work for this project.

    I am doing (or will be) a 71 Charger with a 5.7 and a TKX 5 spd. I am going to be using a Holley Terminator X control system, TTI headers, TTI motor mounts. Borgeson PS box, Holley oil pan, Holley mid mount plate with the alt PS pump (which is a type II, and AC compressor), hydro-boost brake booster, 85 Mopar MC, new gen Challenger electric fans, not sure what radiator just yet.

      My wife actually bought me the car! I’ve been wanting one since I finished my ‘Cuda but ended up building her “dream truck” first.
