Its been a long hard road getting this to run right, pretty much had to replace very thing but my rods to get what I wanted out of it. Went to the dyno at ridge reamers in denver, wher they did a great job breaking in the cam and made some pulls. Its 480 cubes bored n stroked out from 426 cubes, 580 hp @5100/611 ftlbs@4600. The nice thing is I dont have to rev it to infinity to get going. Any ways its a new drive train all the back, 18 spline, pistol grip 4 speed[shiftings a little tight between 1&2 only when i down shift, need to re adjust the linkage, the clutch is not tight] center force dual friction clutch, strange s 60 with 3:54 eaton type suregrip. Tti headers with 3 inch all the way back, 4 wheel discs, and no power steering, its a mans car and I got the fore arms to prove it! I have 250 miles on it so far ,no issues yet n I hope it stays that way. It was nice taking it out in the cold air.....

Looks great! What cam are you running? Roller rockers?

Awesome looking engine and car - well done!

We'd love to see a few more pictures of the car!
