    Yeah man...that's where the disconnect was. Thanks for the info, I'll give him a call. Having a helluva time finding anything within a 4 hour radius that will rent out dyno time for an afternoon.

    And I thought the rod comparison for a couple different builds in the shop right now was interesting:

    1) Chevy 421 6.000"
    2) 351W 5.956"
    3) Stock 429/460 6.605"
    4) Aluminum 6.800"
    5) Aluminum 7.100"

    Started hacking the bottom off on an RPM air gap to give a cleaner 'spider web' look, like a CHI intake, without the CHI Price tag:

    Had to get rid of that ugly double stack look:

    Much better:

    FE to C adapter belly pan...this will be C to 400, but you get the idea:

    Mock up on the 421...being a former Vol, I have an affinity to orange...but this shade just isn't doing it for me:

    Remember that scene in Gone in 60 Seconds:
    -And here we got a '83 Cadillac Eldorado?
    - I mean, who the hell pays...to brighten up a Cadillac Eldorado?

    I-I think it holds a certain,
    uh, sentimental value, you know?


    Anyway...fresh out of the North shop-B2, fresh sheet metal, paint and glass/tint:

    400 almost buttoned up and ready for the run stand. Desktop Dyno estimates are putting this thing in the 550hp range. Finally secured a dyno in the Wilson area (supposedly Robert Yates' brother in law):
