    Thanks for the pics it is looking good.

    Well, i was sckeptic at first glance, at the point of buying a set of 2x4x.120 to do my own connectors in case i dont liked them, cuz i am very anal about fitment issues or about strenght of the chassis components, took them CAR TOOL connectors and the 2x3 to the car, start working, and let me tell you guys, they do fit so nice, that i was in love with them as soon as i test fit em, do a undercoating fast cleanup with my gas torch and putty knife, wire brush it solvent cleaning and start welding the connectors, is was amaizing how tight was the fitment, just so perfect, that all those welds you see there, where made upside down, and they came so beautiful, that it amazed myself, make me feel better about my welding skills:ROFLMAO:

                      i did some mock up on the motor today before sending it to the machine shop to see how all the ports match with the intake and how close the headers are to the block to see if i need to debur something and so far so good taking in consideration the thicknes of the COMETIC head gaskets and intake gaskets with more or less .005 off the block deck when done and is just going to be a mater of match port the top of the head ports at least 1.5mm and the bottom of the intake manifold floor about less than 1mm plus the cleanup i am going to do on the ports intake and exhaust on the head, i am in the proces of fab a throtle body addapter with a low profile setup to install the Q45 90mm TB i got and i got already the fuel rail for both sides on -10 for the injectors, so this is going to be a pump gas monster, so "buy a hybrid guys i need your gas"
                      Here couple of pics.

                          Not sure yet but i think 447 if not a 451, all depends on if i need to go .40 over or .60

                            With a 440 you should probably be a bit conservative. Not a lot of extra room in many of the castings for cleanup later.

                              this is a 68 block i hope i am good with it, as i chek the cylinder water jackets looks solid not a hint of scalped rust it is solid, but i did before went .40 over on a 68 440 block and it was awesome, i hope this will be too!

                                I get to start installing the Mancini leaf spring relocation kit and again run out of shielding gas
                                I did leave the outside of the factory frame rail just because in my opinion it give more strength to the frame itself, (just my likeness) i did make some holes on top to plug weld the top part in that side to the new box, and give me all the clearance from tire to leaf spring,
                                And just for all of you, another way to install them, as far as i know, it haven't been done like that before

                                here some pictures,
