Keiths,

Which valve covers are those?

What mod did you have to do to the tunnel to install the TKO?

hi tony, i had it in without any modification with an american power train "x" cross member but didn't like the drive line angle nor the geometry of my mechanical clutch linkage so i cut a large section of the top of the tunnel,made a steel cross brace and a new sheet metal top, i was too far along under the dash so i put it in with panel bond and rivets. i cut the cross member 1 1/2 " bolted the 4 tabs back together and had a friend tig it back together.and left the bolts in. i don't have a before picture or the x cross member. had i not already spent $$$ on modifications to the trans. i could have used the new low profile tko instead. but now the clutch linkage all lines up perfect and my 3" exhaust fits up tight. and i have room to adjust the driveshaft angle. and no i wouldn't have done this too a pristine original haha









. the valve covers are boss 302

Yep. Looks stock to me. :)
Just some bolt ons  :whistling: It shouldn't be anything special though, just a 10:1 aussie headed street-ish motor with a solid roller. Hoping to make 400 hp or so just under 7000 rpm.

Nice fuel injection.
Thanks, I hope it works lol

I assume you're talking about 400 HP at the rear wheels, I'm thinking quite a bit more than that at the flywheel. ::thumb::

I'll probably tell people it's an olds motor for fun.

That'd be a nice surprise, I hope you're right haha. My injectors will only support 500 hp though, I should be able to get an idea from the duty cycle they run at.

Little 302 in my '73 convertible. Have added a few bits added over the years; Motorsport 351W ported heads with roller rockers, Holley 600CFM carb on a Ford 65 4V manifold I bought from a "Pull-your-own" yard YEARS ago - remember those? -, headers and custom dual exhaust.

hey duck can I get any images of your engine bay in maybe close up quarters, maybe with the air cleaner off? They could be very helpful in the finishing of the restoration of my 72 that was originally a 351 2v. PM me and I'll give you my email.
