As for what to do next, take it to the track!

Turbocharged400sbc yeah, tub it and keep the rear seat

turbo and manual is probably meh unless the turbo's were sized for a badass Tq curve and not a peak number.

upside to turbo's is that with a good controller and some switches you can keep boost low for the traction limits of 1st/2nd etc

justbob Well a year has passed and still going strong! I haven't turned a wrench in a year and that's a great feeling.. But since I normally change things up every two years.. What oh what should I plan for next year? Twins? [emoji50]

justbob After a thousand or so miles she's holding strong and just the pump gas tune has been more than adequate to surprise quite a few. [emoji12]

Finally got the A/C charged up and so far temps have stayed nice and low.

I rebuilt the alt but am still having some charging woes. With the added fuel pump as well as the new Denale fan added to the existing sound system it is beyond time to upgrade the wiring and add a high amp alt unfortunately. With everything on I can only achieve 12.4-13.5ish. Then all I have to do is hit the turn signal and everything dims to the flash and it sounds like I put my cams back in..

Like any project it has an on going list of little things.

justbob Data logged IATs yesterday in 62*.

Results - 68* at idle AND at 45MPH cruising.

Gotta love it! My old roots would have been a minimum of 90*!!!

And the 170* stat was keeping her right at 176*.

I have horrible OCD and wanted something NOBODY has or would ever try. Gutting the tunnel and welding in a recessed portion for the remote under mount shifter is cake for me as well building the cross member so nothing really else to stop me? It only took three weeks after work to complete.

I was having regrets the first few months as I couldn't get any local shops to build a decent shaft. I warped two different ones three times and exploded one at the track in third at the 1000'. My tail shaft angle was dead nuts to the auto's, hence why I built a cross member, but everyone local insisted I needed a telescoping steel shaft.. They were strong as an ox, till I hit 80 and warped them! Finally I contacted Frank at The Driveshaft Shop and he built me a STOUT constant velocity aluminum shaft intended for GT500's. Problem solved!

Next up is going back in and redesign the pedals. It's now been two years/10.000 miles of roughness and I have snapped the clutch master cylinder twice. There is only an 1 1/4" of space to add a clutch pedal, switch, and master under the dash in order to keep the power pedals. There is nothing but real estate above the gas pedal so I think the time has come to ditch the electric pedals..

Re-engineer that and this thing can be trusted for years.

The T-56 would of required a Mceod hydraulic set up as my intention was only modern day. (Looks like I'll be buying that set up now anyhow...) and also where the shifter comes up is so far forward it would required the shifter to be drastically kicked back for several inches then up out of the counsel and that has GOT to feel weird.
