I can't wait to hear how this thing goes! It looks awesome! Looks like you have done your homework on the parts you chose.

What are you shooting for HP wise?

I've been wanting to build something similar, was looking to use a used GM 400 block but everything Carl has written has me convinced to go with a Dart based build such as yours.

Keep up the good work it looks great!

If it runs like it looks feel sorry for everything behind it, especially the tires.

Jeff, I was just checking out your valve covers again. Do the covers come with a provision for PCV and oil filling? I can't tell if the driver side has them. Also do you think you will have clearence issues with the wiper motor? I have a 69 and I am getting ready to order these. TIA

No they don't have PCV holes. I had to drill them, no big deal. Yes I had to buy the DSE wiper motor, if you using GM heads you may be ok but it will be tight. My heads have a raised valve cover rail so there was noway it was fitting.

Just finished putting it in my 67 today, Took the first test drive about an hour ago! Holy @#%$ it runs like a scalded ape. A real neck snapper for sure. My 355 was no dog turning a best of [email protected] but this thing WOW. Hit the gas at any speed and it smokes the tires.:D

That is like super cool!! You're going to have to put up a video so we can hear it when you get it going.

I see you are using the Edelbrock fuel pump. I installed one on my small block and had an issue with the motor mount. With a little searching I was able to find the right bends to make it work.
Yup, They shouldn't have spaced the inlet and outlets at 180 deg. Ahh whats another 50 bucs in AN fittings. Lol
