    How's that power feel?;) Can be a bit scary. All through 2nd. gear it struggles for traction. I'm running a fairly tall gear at 3.15:1. If you punch it and downshift into 2nd. at 50 or 60 mph it gets loose on you. If you're going say 15 or 20 mph and nail it in drive it just goes 1 2 3 through the gears smoking the tires for as long as you dare to hold the pedal down. I usually back out after a couple hundred feet as it gets fast and starts to go's sideways.

    [/img] 532 big block. Pump gas motor with hydraulic cam, Edelbrock heads ,forged everything. Engine dyno'd at 630h.p. 650 ft.lbs. torque. C6 transmission,9 inch from a 67 fairlane which is 1 inch narrower per side and allows for 15x10 wheels and a 275/60 tire to fit no problem
  3. Does anyone know of a header that doesn't hang so damn low? I am running Crites headers currently but they're too low. Hooker headers I believe are about the same. I'm thinking a shorty style would be a good solution but I'm unable to find anything. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Rick

    Thanks for the warm welcome everybody. Yeah it pretty much blows the tires everywhere.

    Unfortunately the stock hood didn't offer the clearance for the motor.

    I'm a bit of a analog man here. How do you post pics?
