Well...

That's a forged~bottom 333 Mexican block, aluminum headed-solid cammed street/strip motor... I'm hoping for one horsepower per cubic inch... at the tires

Good looking motor so far, noticed the extra cut in the pistons, what heads are you using?

One suggestion, have you clear coated the harmonic balancer? I've got the same one on my 347, thought it was plated, but its not, if it is subjected to the outside elements, instant rust. The timing numbers are hard to see with a timing light in broad daylight. Have any clearance problems on the bottom two water pump bolts? I have a Milodon pump and had to grind the aluminum boss around the bolts for clearance.

Sorry Scoop

Thanks Mike The flycut is for Trick Flow heads. Great tip about clearcoating the balancer, thanks. I too had to grind a bit off the bolt bosses... that's a meaty sucker!

Hey Thumper,

What I noticed is that your garage is A LOT cleaner than mine. But we do share the back seat hanging around in the garage thing.
