I work on it every day. Getting closer. Since I can't reach the dashboard while sitting it was necessary to make a control panel and place it between the seats. It is wired. Just have to run a hot lead to the fuse block and run wires from the terminal strip to the loads.

It's getting closer. The trans tunnel, driveshaft tunnel and floor are in. Painted. It will all be covered in insulation and carpet after everything checks out. Or maybe not.

The engine is mounted quite high, which created clearance problems with the hood. Now working on this "power bubble". If the velocity stack/air cleaner is a bit too much i can get a lower spacer and run a flatter cleaner. I had this stuff laying around. Here's a lower, larger unit and the K & N without the velocity stack. I really don't like any of them.

Yep all of them detract from the smooth look. Is it possible to keep it all under the hood using oval intake tubing from a late model to a filter down in front?

E-man, The carb itself is flush with the "power bubble". That's the air horn and choke blades. The answer is: Tunnel Ram with 2 4's. Or possibly an injector/blower scoop.
