Just a basic de-smogged factory looking engine with Iron Eagle heads, recalibrated HEI and a Larsburetor.

I like the fuel hard line for PCV and booster idea! Pretty cool!

Floated a plan for a picture enlargement, nice frame and hanging it in the bedroom. The plan was quickly deep sixed.

When I ciphered the horsepower numbers I realized I'd need 25 engines like the one in my golf cart to replace the 350 in my `76. So I'm not gonna do it now. I'd actually prefer less chrome though and would eventually like to return the engine bay to stock.

I can't decide if I prefer a body colored C3 firewall or just black. I like both. Either way your engine bay looks really spiffy.
