    It's been awhile, but here is an update on the 2015 race season. November 2014, my wife and I began tear down of the top end to put new heads, intake and cam in, since I knew I had a small oil leak, I pulled the oil pan and discovered some junk in the pan. Pulled pump, and found broken, cracked housing and main cap. Pulled rod caps, and main caps, found brass, Babbit completely gone, so pulled pistons, only two pistons still had rings in one piece. So my 2014 labor day weekend i was only running on 2 cylinders hence 16's and lack of rpm, so...
    Trip to machine shop with set of KB flat top pistons i found on ebay a few years earlier for a different project that didn't happen, decked the block .010", port matched the intake/heads, did a minor polish on the Eddy heads I bought. And I took the time to index the Spark Plugs...
    Thinking, 14's hoping for 13's...
    12.48 FIRST PASS!!!!
    I didn't have a lot of time to do any more tuning but my wife did reach 12.22. My only addition I'm planning is Harland Sharp 1.6 roller rockers and fiberglass hood with scoop, then get the rest of the body straightened out and painted. We are looking forward to 2016!

    Thanks, and yeah I see them in the 360 view too, but I was lookin at Summit's Ebay Ad for them, and they say the Holes for alternator Brackets, etc., aren't drilled. And on Summits site they say yes for the same item, and Jegs doesn't say anything. So just wonderin, if anyone has used them and knew for sure, and also if they liked them.

    On a side note, My brother-in-law, his brother, and a few of my buddies keep tellin my to go too Indy. I had already did that, and Indy just sells these Edelbrock heads at various stages of machining and polishing. They didn't know what to say. Chevy boys...

    Well, I did get the car running and hope to post some pics soon. It is slow. It has torque up the ass, but I couldn't get the RPM's over 5000. My buddies told me I should've taken it to the local plow days instead of the track. It is originally a truck engine and it could pull anything all day long. It ran better in the truck under load than when it was just haulin itself down the road. It's not breathing very good with the RV cam and 70's smog heads. I have already bought a Holley Strip Dominator Intake and Lunati Cam. I want to order a set of Edelbrock performer rpm heads, #60779, but I am getting conflicting info on if the accessory holes are machined on the ends of the heads. Anyone know? Thanks, t

    The 66 Barracuda was based off of the 66 Valiant....and looking at pics, it looks the same to me and since the Barracuda was built off of the Valiant I would say it's the same.

    Does anyone know for sure if a fiberglass 66 Baracuda hood will fit on a Valiant? I thought most of the sheet metal was interchangeable. Just wonderin since I can't find 66 specific for a Valiant, and my original is in such good shape I don't want to cut a hole in it. Thanks, t

    I think most guys just use this 90 degree adapter but you can get the ones with lines and mount where you want. Hope this helps not a small block guy mock up headers if you can to see what you are up against

    I would have turned the 1x3 edgeways for more vertical strength and let them go through the floor boards and then welded the sheet metal to them......
