According to all the calculations it should be around 800HP with the boost set to 6PSI. I'm keeping it on the mild side for now.

800HP... I guess that's good for driving to church on Sunday and getting groceries... ::) ;D ;D J/K ;)

On your resto thread over a TAC, you said that "at some point you gotta stop"... well, I like where you've "stopped". :) 8)

Hey thanks, the dash was made from an 1/8' aluminum. I had it polished first but did not like the looks of it. I still have to make the lower door panels. As of right now the floors and rear tubs are all covered in carpet. I'd like to redo all that with maybe leather. If I go that route I will recover the dash console and door panels to match. I have all winter to get it done.

I love it!
For a second there, I thought it may be my old 1972 Firebird, with the grilles, nose, Hurst hatches, and small rear window.
I thought it was a 1972 for a second there!
Then, I saw the taillights (which I love your conversion by the way!), and rear bumper.
Do you have any photos of the tilt front end up in the air, showing the engine?
I would love to see some.
Beautiful car!

You know I don't have any new ones since the Big Block was installed only with the small block that was in it. Looks like I have to break out the camera for some new pics of the nose.




Heres a pic of the motor somebody wanted. This pic was when I first set it in there. Still some stuff to hook up yet.

Well by looking at the car and the fact that it is 800HP you tell me if it's all show and no go.
As of now I have only put 8 miles on it. The car is a complete brand new car.
I still have to finish breaking it in. I have got on it some and I can tell you it does go. ;)
