I've been bugging you guys for 2 years with my vodka educed responses to posts, sorry I'm bored in Brazil. But I have only 23 days to go! So I thought I would share my list of what I have accumulated while here with the help of your answers and reading other posts. You guys made it easy to get good parts to build a street strip motor for my 66 Cyclone while I was here. It kept me entertained just coming here to read every evening and hunting parts, Thanks to all of you guys! So here it is, my final list, I just need get it together, tell me what you think.

It's a bit twisted already,

The 418 did that. Started seeing it in the C pillars. I tied the subframes together and that helped stiffen it up. I know I need some suspension work, I think I need to get it hook up good before swapping motors then see what happens. Steve

Sounds Excellent.

Should be a very stout power plant.
Maybe a set of Barry R's 750 carbs to round it out.
What trans is backing up the thumper?

TKO, 4:11 rear

I have a set caltraks to put on and I'll be running a set of Mickeys in the rear. Thinking about dropping the trans off at Liberties and getting it worked on. When I get home I pass them everyday. I just need the money, that's the hard part, funding! Steve

First, I think you are going to love it. However, I would consider chasing down other options for modified Edelbrock heads before you make a choice.

My heads started life as KC heads and we just couldnt get them to recreate his numbers. In his defense, KC took them back and reworked them, but they came back with more real flow when we tested, but less on his flow sheet.

In the end, I ended up having them worked a third time to pull the numbers I thought I was getting originally.

FWIW, the only guy who didnt lose money in this deal was the UPS guy, both KC and I ate a lot of time and money.

No doubt it'll run well, but there are few options out there from suppliers on this forum that may work better.
