Wow, I just caught up after months of not check out what's been going on. I usually get email alerts whenever someone posts to this thread or NoReins makes an update, and started to get worried. (can you say Devoted follower!!!)
I really hate when these companies state that their products will work with XYZ application, but when you get the item in and installed it's far from the truth. I had problems with QA1 suspension parts (on my 2000 GT) and the MSD EFI I got on my car now. The MSD EFI was a $2200 mistake! Hearing what you had to say almost turns me far away from using R&C setups. So maybe Ill go back to the drawling board with my planned setup.
There are plenty of stout engine combos out there that you can go with. You might want to explore with the DART 302 blocks or the Boss Ford blocks for more cubes. I would sell the supercharger alone and the long block separately since they don't work together.
I know you wanted to keep it as move correct as possible, but wouldn't the cheaper route be getting the larger Eleanor hood?
The Eleanor project that I have been working on is at a stand still too. Since coming back from body and paint, my good friend that I am helping (it's his car) appears to have lost interest; which is a shame because all is left to do is put everything back in the car and buy an engine. I might try to purchase it from him to build and sell to provide additional funding for my Eleanor convertible project.
That looks so wicked... Who is the photo shoot for?
I know you all needed a break, but keep going on her... I guess for encouragement I'll say to you the same thing I say to my friends when we're bitching about racing costs/parts that don't fit/wrecks/lack of sponsors etc... "If it was easy everyone would be doing it." And as always, if there's anything we can help with, let us know...
The gas pedal fits best right up against the firewall, so I figure it should be there as much as possile
Thanks guys! No development on the engine. Right now the only thing she's doing is serving as a very pretty garage ornament Everytime I go into the garage I do a double take. She is so pretty, the pictures don't go her justice. We'll get back at it soon, I promise. Time and money, time and money as we all know!
Here is a shot of the front finished with her grilles and lights. I can't get enough of her. The owner Southern Polyurethanes (we used SPI Universal Clear and SPI epoxy) requested a few shots for the Southern Polyurethanes product catalog.
