And on we go...

#1 Post by wikd69 » Sun Oct 23, 2016 1:24 am

Getting a bit closer to dyno time. It really doesn't look like it but it has taken a lot of work to get to this point...

Next up, heads, oil pump, pan, intake, blower, and so on. I'll post pix with progress :smt003

First fitment of a bunch of new hardware. Believe it or not, there's a big block chevy under all that aluminum.

Another view, note you can barely see the new cam sync/crank trigger sensor ports tucked under the water pump.

And finally, looking down through the top of this new blower manifold you can see the intake valves for #2 & #8. Straight shot from the blower outlet against the tented floor in the intake plenum and then directly into the cylinder. Do you think this thing will breathe ? :smt003

Will it be making some noise before Christmas?
Those who think they know it all have no way of finding out they don't......... :scratch:
