I started out with a crate motor. Which I got for a hell of a deal so NOT counting that. I have $3,600.00. Thats just the cam, heads, intake, carb, headers, distributor, ignition system, and timing gear set. The headers are BBK shorties and the exhaust system is all custom with "X" pipe. The exhaust was another $450.00.
The 400 HP. is at the flywheel. Still plenty to get into trouble with in this very light car.

sounds good, looks sweet.

once the timing is sorted, u may want to check the accellerator pump adjustment too, it has a bit of a stumble off idle

Thanks, and thanks for the tip. I will be hooking it up to the scope to tune it in after I reset the valves and re-torque the heads. I also have to fab up a plate to relocate my throttle linkage.
