Hey Todd,

Lookin pretty damn good!! What kinda heads/intake/carb you got on there? Looks like you've got the new RPM Air Gap on there. Have you measured for hood clearance?

I can't wait to see the post of you putting her in and firing her up!!

Dang, what a hot saturday!!

Thanks guys

Erik, those are Trick Flow heads... Holley 3310 (780 cfm )... and an Airgap manifold. Hood clearance will be sung; I'll need to use a HiPo style shortie air cleaner.

The motor goes between the shock towers tomorrow , it'll light up next weekend

Todd, hood clearance shouldn't be a problem. I've got basically the same set-up (click on link in my sig) with the Air-Gap and even with the Hi-Po air cleaner I've got no clearance problem
