Some guy who builds motors in his garage in SF, he provides you with flow sheets too. Only problem is I lost his number and I kinda don't remember exactly how to get to his place. Does really good work tho, he showed me a motor he was building a guy to hit 4 digits with.
was that HYFLOYDS on here? I know he had a flow bench at his house and lived in that area.

I had Ed Curtis at FTI do runner work, plenum work and port match my victor jr carb style intake. I'm over $800 into this stupid thing including the purchase of the intake!

I don't even know if he's a member on here honestly. I met him through another guy on corral that I bought some heads off of a few years back.

I can't get away from projects [Cool]

Is he swapping it to that black vert? I didn't know they made convertible Darts! You definitely got some projects on your hands. What's the hardest part about the coyote swap? I'm going to do mine sometime in the future when I blow my motor.
That black vert is spending the spring in FL. [Smile]

Yes, they made convertible Darts...but only a few thousand in the 1967-1969 variations. I'm (eventually) installing a drivetrain from a 07 Charger R/T, along with all the other good stuff (disc brakes, 9" rear, etc).

The hardest part? Trying to save money while doing it. It's extremely easy to just want to order everything, like the control pack. But at $1600, a bit of work with a wiring diagram will save big $$$$, especially if the PATS is bypassed in the ECU. If you plan it well in advance, a lot of it is simply labor.

Then I picked up a 17 in November that has been itching for some parts to get put on it as well. Currently have a Cobra Jet Manifold, longtubes, twin 67 TB, and Cold Air waiting to go on.

We can flip rotate phones instead. Looks like a show car setup with so much chrome. What is the combination?

Nah, not a show car. In fact, the outside is pretty rough. One step at a time. It's just the headers that are chrome. The valve covers are the semi-polished aluminum SVE from LMR. I needed something to clear the rockers since the stock ones weren't quite there.

Dart big bore 347, AFR 195 heads and Holley Systemax intake. Putting my little V-3 back on as well. Should be a fun drive. I hit up Modern Driveline for the TKO600 with carbon syncros and all accompanying parts.

Can't wait to get it going!

Are SVE parts any good? I heard many SVE parts are lower and quality imported.

[worship] your combo is going to be wild.

I'm not too sure. The valve covers seem to be of good quality. The only other SVE parts I've used are the firewall adjuster and quadrant combo. Both of those work just fine.
