Finally!!! My 440 build is almost complete. Gotta get the serpentine stuff from March on there, find an altenator, and get Thorley to ship the headers, and I'll be ready to set this thing on the frame. Been way too long since my RC (my kids call him Moe) rolled down the road under his own power...

That looks sweet Mike, but why do you keep calling it a 440? ;) Are those Edelbrock heads? What intake? Its been a while since you rattled off the specs, what about a refresher?

Ok, no more lies. The truth will set me free, right? It's not a 440 anymore; it's now a 496 thanks to bore and stroke ;D

The heads are Indy's, and I must say that those guys are way cool. Know what they're doing, and they do it well. The intake is the Edelbrock Performer. Had to keep the EGR holes for CA smog :mad:

I'll write up the specs in detail when I get some free time, but here's my ticket to cat free smog tests. Notice the 6100lbs GVW. That's the difference, and why I'm going to all the trouble of swapping the '77 frame under the '90 body 8)

And a pile of parts. The axles are being rebuilt right now, and I should have them back in a week or 2. Ready to turn some wrenches, Nate?
