    Very cool and impressive! Love the look of the twin plugs. We also tried to do something a little different (especially since the old Flatty mags are so expensive - and we had a SBC mag on the shelf - we did have to change the rotation)

    The new plugs can't protrude past the head to maintain clearance from the piston. I've set them as far down as I could then opened up the hole so as not to shroud the plug.

    I had the adapters cast up. Have a look at the car build up here http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=737344 and the bit about the adapters is on page four.
