Project update!

Work is done on the top end of the engine, the coil over conversion, and the complete rear axle build.
First the car rides like a dream. I am shocked at how different it feels on the road. Just in time for some long mountain runs in the fall. And the Conclave, if we have it.
The engine turned out really nice. I worked directly with Holley to come up with an appropriate fuel system. I replaced everything in the ignition, reset the valves, and cleaned and tightened everything. It used to be that I would touch the gas and get thrown back into the seat. Followed by a drop off in performance on the top end. Now the car is very easy to drive. Smooth power delivery across the RPM range. Now that everything is mechanically sound, I will try to get the paint done before the Conclave.
