    got a few pics to share of the engine and what has been done this weekend. i like how the hilborn stacks just peek over hood but may have wanted 1/2 more...still have to finish the hole in hood and im going to run a 5 1/16 rod around opening and the blend it in to give the hood opening some style..

    Welcome to the world of constant flow injection. That was quite a change you made in two months. With the Hilborn setup, you will definitely be needed that magneto now. You car sure has made big strides since you started working on it. Sooooo, ready for the CHRR this year?
