well after a got a few quotes on axles and rear end stuff, i decided to swap thirds from my coupe.

Coupe had 4.11 posi P case
Chevy had 3.73 posi P case

If I grenade the rear, I will switch to a 12B. Most likely, I will snap an axle. 17 spliners....

Tires and wheels showed up, I'm getting them mounted tomorrow. While pulling the tirnd from my coupe I split my thumb open with a soft blow 5lb hammer. Good times

Spent all day messing with the intake and valve covers. This intake has been a MAJOR PITA...

Sometimes it feels like your just not moving forward...

Ohh, I used those super blingy steel laminated valve cover gaskets and 1 piece pan gasket. I highly recommend them !!!!.. Also found out this is two bolt main engine.... Errrr.

- cast pistons
- two bolt main

Not ideal for a boosted engine, at least its only 8:1 comp, I should be OK ( for a while ) running low boost. I also started gutting the interior as it's getting a new carpet kit...( old one was covered in mold underneath )

I am going back and fourth on primering the tilt front end as it REALLY looks like ASS and is severely cracked and needs to be repaired. Well see

Also have some snout spacing issues to work out

got the master in and messed around with the belt alignment. I'm going to need some parts.


Master is from a 76' vette and bolted right in...

Also picked up some sweet wires
