  1. Wow Chris, you really jumped back in with both feet again. Looks cool. Who are you working with on that Hairy Old Olds?

    I had Lamb Race Engines do the valves. Carl Pelletier Did the intake manifold machining to fit the blower to my engine. I did the rest. I will be replacing the exhaust manifold with 442 reproduction ones so it can breathe and not leak like so many headers do.
     
  3. Great job on the chop. The color looks good too. Love the Cadillac style front bumper, also like the old school stance. Can't wait to see the finished product.

    What does "finished" mean?
     
  5. I was enjoying reading through your thread, cool mods, daily driver, a bit here, a bit there, but then you went and added twin blowers.
    Wow, this really got awesome quick.
    I'll have to go hit the watch button.
    Cool thread.

  6. Well krahnic , when I say finished I mean a running and driving vehicle, not necessarily painted and polished
