    Thanks fellas. It's the nicest thing I've ever done to a car. Usually it's me trying like hell and failing to get it right. This time, I let the experts handle it!

    awesome,....that sounds like the one i just picked up for my 49. its got a 4bbl intake on it though. wish it was multi carb but i figure a custom intake is still pretty cool.

    where did you get the dress up stuff like the valve cover?

    Thanks man. The valve cover, side cover, split manifold and water pump came from http://www.patricksantiquecars.com/chevyparts.htm

    The intake & carbs came from
    http://www.stoveboltengineco.com/acartpro/index.asp

    I'd also like to thank 6inarow (HAMBer) for the guidance. I'm finally free of my SBC addiction!
