Notes & ModificationsAs far as the motor goes, and from what i have been told;

-solid lifter motor
-holley 750 cfm
-motor bored over .60
-full balanced and blue print motor
-edelbrock high rise aluminum dual plane intake
-ford racing cams (not sure on the duration or specs)
-mallory ignition
-pertronix ignition ( I added)
-Hooker long tube headers
-4 speed has a short throw (from hurst)
9in rear has beieved to be 4.11's in

Very stout, healthy motor. I believe this car makes well into the high 300 hp range. I intend to take the intake, igntion, headers and other "noticable" power adders off and put back on the stock components. I still think the motor will be a power house, but obviously not "as much" power as it has now which is just fine for me because as it sits the car is a bit of a handfull lol. The motor will stay a solid lifter, as well as the cam thats in it but that is about it. All external stuff will be pulled and sold
