He11 ya man, the best thing about this other than the mad power that is. The sound of it is going to be very cool. NA with a good cam can't beat it. Your going to have a ball with it.

Be off the air before too long will be in SC 28mar and headin back south say 1 APR. breakin on way back, maybe some back roads? Lookin for Daisy. peace

got some great pics, unfortunately forgot my photobucket p-word, so later pics. Got into Charleston Monday morn and as luck had it followed Jeff right to the HHP Carolina shop. Tear down commenced remove engine trans car gutted from radiator to console leaving front of car high and dry and me oh a small pit in my stomach. Tuesday build up and tranfer pieces used from stock to built engine install new pieces into shrt blck BEScam, ATI balancer etc etc. Wednesday install into car BES426 shrt blck BESheads w/headers build up heads valve trane BESintake install Spec clutch assy etc feeling better now. All in all going well minor glitches conquered immediately feeling real good now. Tommorrows plan install trans and shifter add fluids exhaust halfshafts DSloop etc and likely a start up test seasoning and dynos to follow maybe on Friday. Great crew here. nuther update later
