Well Just a Winter Update Got sick with that Nasty Covid and on the mends now but pulled my Asthma from a 10 year remission have to be on a Machine for Oxygen for a few months now BUT STILL gathering part's for the Springtime install..... Stepped up to an Edelbrock RPM air gap from the edelbrock performer 2.0 and compared side by side its a Monster LOL I think anyway's


Next was trying to Locate Brackets & Pulleys for stock and Prices are NUTS for that let me tell you that, So went with Alum pulleys for like $60 bucks and then Summit racing had a deal on Alum Alternator / Power steering bracket kit, then needed wire looms and Oil and Trans dipsticks, So pretty much just back to breathing semi Normal again and get back to the 454 Build and install

Yeah, accessory bracketry is one of the annoying parts of a build for sure. I saw a guy once who made a set of places to use SBC Serpentine parts on his BBC. If I could get away with it I'd think Vortec 7400 bits myself but what do I know.

I actually Priced them out also BUT was still about a Hundo what I have into this set and will kinda match the alum pulleys

Dang. Sorry to hear about your troubles with COVID, but I'm glad to see that the car is still progressing! I hate accessory brackets on old engines like these. They're like a puzzle except you don't get much satisfaction from putting them together correctly. lol

Well I have finally decided on the scoop to add on I have a glass hood I am bonding it to its a pin on hood BUT gonna use Camaro 3rd gen hood supports if it Holds a steel Camaro hood it will have no issues with a fiberglass Hood.
Also the glass hood has no rear Cowl vents on it, So the scoop will get all the Air from the G SPOT of the windshield

That lack of window channel rust is a huge amount of work savings.
