Congratulations on the almost trouble free fire up. If it runs as good as it looks you'll have to have both hands on the wheel at all times Wink. Great looking engine and engine bay. Todd

Yeah, It's a Hybrid...It burns gas and tires.

No matter how good she looks, somebody, somewhere, is tired of her sh*t.

Hello Rick,

Wow! I am kind of new to this forum and was browsing the projects when I came across yours! Very, very nice! Excellent choices IMHO on the build. Must be a blast to drive! Excellent attention to detail too!  Did I miss the specs on the stroker build? I will have to go back and check.

Mr. Max, I think i also found that fuel pump from one of your posts.A little pricey but no cheap chinese junk. I went this far I wasnt going to cheap out now.Thanks for that...Yea and the heads are cast aussie heads , I guess they just lit up with the flash...........Hey Todd, Thanks for checking out the thread...And it is a blast to drive..The engine runs strong eagle crank and rods 10to 1 comp and 548 hyd roller cam with 700dp holley.About 450 hp a real nice street motor and very dependable. You get alot of looks when driving around town.All I need is a RAM AIR....I guess we will wait and see...Thanks Rick

Are you in the bidding for the one from here on E-bay?
Even though I would not pay that much for a piece, it is WELL WORTH every penny it is bringing on E-Bay right now!!!

Lets just say I have a number in my head that I will bid in the final seconds of the auction.I will bid that number and only that number. On that piece you cant lose . Even if I put it on my car and then for some reason (of which I doubt but you never know) I go to sell my car I would sell the ram air separate.I did bid once to make sure I could bid with my phone because I dont know where I will be Monday around 330 or 4pm....Ive been watching it every day...Rick
