    Kenny G, yea I am keeping the 6. I am starting to buy up go fast goodies for it. The Offy intake just showed up. I am now scratching my head as to what to do about the bottom of it. The Offy is set up for a stock exh. manifold. I am planning on running headers but running into an issue. I can either plate off the area it bolts to the exh on the bottom or find a split exh manifold that will accept the offy.

    Here is a link to a youtube of my old 218 with the Offy intake and Fenton repop cast iron header running through 2 1/4 inch pipes with short 14 inch no name turbo mufflers and a cross over about even with the middle of the transmission.

    And here is Moose's in his Model A sedan with open headers.

    Way cool! I love the tractor exhaust note. I was planning on going with a pair of those tiny 12in glass packs and running it over into a set of full length lakes.

    Cool man. I am trying to decide if I feel like braving the cold in an almost-not so much-heated garage tonight after kids zonk out. If that's it in the pic, looks slick from what I can see. Much better than my Plymouth. I drive truck and only have the weekends to wrench after all other needed chores are done so its slow going.

    OUCH just dropped another $900 on the '64! Thats how it works... Well worth it though. A better waste of money has yet to be found.
     
  25. Welcome from Columbus Grove, Ohio. I parted out a '64 New Yorker and a '64 Newport. Still have some trim left if you need any. Real cheap or free to get it out of my way. Would love for someone to be able to use it.

    Just installed a pertronix set up. With the ohms on the coil they are recommending I bypass or remove the ballast resistor. Has anyone done this on an early 60's mopar and how did it work out?
