Good deal man, cant wait to see it run. Should easily hit 125 on motor. Most street friendly 383's can hit 120-121 on motor. 421 should have no problem with that

Very nice!! I'm jealous! Hope I'm not stepping on any toe, if I suggest, don't settle for a mail order tune, dyno or street tune is the only way to do it right. Wonder how the manners on the street will be w/ that beast? Enjoy, Tom

Yes, I have bought, and sold a few parts. But at least I paid to have something built in the end. When you build something, and you don't take shortcuts, it takes alot of hard earned money.

What a great feeling!! The motor is beautiful! Love the valve covers. I recently sold mine and I miss them. Good luck getting it in!
