    Mark...

    No time to admire there's lot's of small parts that need painting and dyeing.I'm going to take it easy today...then get back at er hammer and tongs.
    The other engine is another GTX bullet like Dave mentioned...I'm going to put it back in the GTX right after I get Vic's running...

    Mark...

    I took the one under the bench out and put the numbers matching power train in so I could get a appraisal...I couldn't drive around with a 440 under the hood so I built a pump gas 515 ci using the numbers block.

    hey nice looking engine Sir! craftsmanship is bar non.
    on a side note, I ran into a guy that knows you and
    Rob E. he just got out of prison for manslaughter or
    something to that effect and he wants to say hi to
    you guys! something about a name on a website(?)

    anyways I digress. did you put that 273 on a dyno?
    i may have missed it in these posts. thanks.

    It's been a while since I posted anything...
    The converter gave us some problems but it's OK now and the engine is in. The interior needed a bit of love so I've been going through that for the last couple of weeks.
    The picture doesn't do it justice but the interior really looks good now.

    I guess some posts have gone missing so to recap...the interior is finished the engine is running a quick trip to the muffler shop and the cuda is on the road...
    I'll post a video once we get the ex system on...
