This reminds me of the KDI car (on sale here on the forum). Just awesome. I'm going to do the same thing, so I' subscribed. Great car.
I was actually thinking of doing splayed valve COPO heads and a 2.9 or 4 liter Sc; which would probably require adding a metal center piece to the hood to allow clearance, and as well as custom srtut tower brace. You ought to be pushing low 10's (10.2) where you sit; on a good day perhaps 9.x s in the 1/4. Gr8 car!
What's it making at the crank?
