    I debated a lot on the exhaust, if I should go to my favorite shop or just do it myself. I ended up buying a Pypes system from Summit and just fabricating my own down pipes off the shorty style headers.

    I think it turned out ok.

    I'm using the slotted rubber square pucks on the pinch welds. Square pucks placed on the circular "pedestal" pucks, that come with the Quick jack set up. Can post pics if interested.

    It's been a while since I posted. Still making progress. Set the timing and got it running, cranked right up. Engine and exhaust sound good! It's been at the paint shop for a couple of months. I guess they are backed up a bit. Got some pics though, should have some paint on it in a few days.

    Looks great. Nice feeling when it's finally painted and you can focus on assembling your adult Revell model kit, lol.
    Did I miss the engine specs?
