Sounds G R E A T!

Hope you've got a pilot's license for that rocket :)

Would you recap the details on the engine build for us please?

X2. I'm glad it's all together and seems to be working well for you. I'm also curious what you ended up sticking in your engine. What trans?

I put a Borg Warner super t-10 in it. 3.42 first gear! Double hump heads ported polished valves roller rocker arms 1.6 bored .030 over. I forget the specs on the cam but its a bit more aggressive than an L79 350 horse cam. The rear is the last part of this project but we wanted to hold off on it and work the minor bugs out of the car first then do the rear end. We had a driveshaft that went right in anyway so we said what the hell, why not just slap a joint in it and run it for a week or two. The rear end is a 1960 olds 9.5 inch rear with 3.42 gears posi. All converted to 57 chevy brake drums. It's a bolt and switch swap.

That 327 sounds really stout. Can't wait to see some video of you abusing the tires.
