Default 408 build..

just an update..went with dart225cnc heads that just arrived bare...the afr 225 are no longer available and my builder did not want to go with the new 220's because he liked more volume for the future twins...the intake was all polished by a bench hand here at work and now it will be going to powdercoat..one head will be going to the water jet guy to make the header flanges..pistons were ordered and valve train parts should be in this week.thats it for now...later.

I see fuel rails but a carb intake. Maybe a Holley fuel injection setup? Anyway, stop with the pictures you braggart. You're just making us newbies jealous. lol An extremely beautiful build with amazing attention to detail. I hope you setup the chassis for all that torque and power or you're gonna destroy that car. All the parts I would've thrown at that build. Great job. I'll keep watching this thread.

Oh, duh. I didn't see the fuel rails. It looks like a Super Victor from what I can tell
