Thanks, I’ll look into some heat sleeves for the lines. I’ve gotten away with no choke in past, I guess I’ll see how this one does. It only will get driven in nice weather, but not the end of world if I have to go back and throw an electric one on.Get some of the slip over heat sheilding for the fuel ines. Also get an electric choke kit. Holley sells them. Both of those things will make your future driveability smooth. Vaporlock and hard cold starts aren't fun. Build looks great!
Nice. My axles and brakes showed up but I’m still waiting on the housing and center section. To be honest, I didn’t want any tubular control arms. I had quite a bit of cash tied up in the original ones. (Sandblasted, powdercoated, Moog bushings/ball joints, new hardware, etc.) I wasn’t too happy when I went to install the lowers and they hit the headers. For some reason it never crossed my mind to check that ahead of time. So I ordered a set of tubular lowers that had more clearance. I still had to dimple the headers though. I like that the uppers will still look correct from under the hood at least.
It’s a factory forged small journal crank, LT1 rods, forged flat top .030 over pistons with valve reliefs, trick flow double hump aluminum heads with 60cc chambers. Lunati voodoo solid flat tappet cam with matching lifters and dual valve springs, Edelbrock performer RPM intake, Holley 650 double pumper, Hooker Super comp 1 3/4 headers. I believe I’m at about 10.4:1 and around 400hp at the crank.So what are the details on the 327 build again? I may be acquiring a 327 and was planning on a similar build. Just a nice top end kit to make 350-400 rwhp.
