Great news today,removed the cylinder head with the dropped valve and the cylinder looks good,no scratches or gouges and the piston looks ok. Next week ill pack up the motor and search the Portland metro area for a reputable machine shop for rebuild. So what do folks think on the rebuild? Go stock or go for more?,keep in mind I will retain the factory intake and carb and exhaust manifolds. I also noticed there are 4 mufflers on the dual exhaust system,is this stock or has something been added? Again thanks for all the help and kind words and I really value you folks opinions on this rig.

That's what I have in my 70 R/T SE. Mine is an old Direct Connection kit. I mounted the ignition box in a '73 E body bracket.the retrofit of the Chrysler electronic ignition is a good upgrade - this was standard from '73 on up and is a straighforward reliable system over the old points / condenser that would have been OEM for a '70
hotter spark and more stable dwell angle over points
