The intake came out very nicely! Everyone knows that chrome plating adds HP.

Looking forward to the dyno.

I used Howard's Maximum Effort Retro-Fit Hydraulic Roller Lifters for my retro .560" cam. Hardly any noise at all.

That is good news because they are what Howards reccomended for my camshaft.

Why use a 2004R ? With your power the bigger band , bigger drums and clutches are a lot more important then plug and play. The 700R4 is a lot more stout a tranny then the 2004R. Use the 13 vane pump , hardened parts as needed for full upgrade and select a rear gear ration you can be happy with.

I had 3.31 gears , a badly built 3.73 and now a 3.92 with the 700R4 .. BY FAR the 3.92 is the gear to have ,my car launches like the hulk and those gears keep the engine pounding like a chain saw right up through all gears.

By the way that is a sweet build you got !~!~!~! The power will be amazingly fun no doubt

I have a cloyes 2 pc timing cover and will use the edelbrock victor
water pump.It looks to be a tight fit but can be made to work.

There is plenty of spark plug clearance and I'll try to get more pictures to accurately show it.

Trans is not done yet and I already have a 700r4 core.But after talking to Vince Janis decided to go the 2004r route.When aftermarket billet parts are added he thinks the 2004r will hold up better.He is not a fan
of the aluminum input drum in the 700r4.

Is that the GMPP balancer? What did you pick it up for? Looks like an ATI

Permastar finish sure is nice, (intake) makes polishing obsolete

Balancer is the 7 inch ati,intake was powder coated then chromed in a pvd chamber.There is a local business that specializes in chroming aftermarket wheels and on occasion will allow an intake fit into his schedule.My shop made a set of wheels for the sema show a few years back and that is how I came into contact with him.

Good chrome shop Id be interested in their #. Nothing good in SoCal anymore that I know of.

Engine looks killer! (Although I'd Powdercoat the valve covers black as the orange is a little out of place IMOP).

Looks like a nice combo.. I assume you are shooting for 500hp or so?

Should definitely put that Vette in the 11s..

Sub'd for progress... (I'll check back next year )
