    Garner7555 Awesome build!! I have a big block Mopar sitting in the garage. I thought about building it and putting it my Duster, but I think I'll stick to the small block for now. Too bad Edelbrock didn't make and XT setup for the small block.
    Thank you. I am really enjoying the car. Now I just need overdrive. There is always something that needs changing.

    I am enjoying the Pro Flo 4 setup. It is simple and works great. I have a wet nitrous setup that will go on one day when I have enough time.

    I am looking at a wet nitrous setup. (my friend has a new setup that is cheap) Is there a good way to retard the timing when the nitrous sprays? I am running the timing control setup with edelbrock distributor that comes with the kit. Thanks for any help.

    I hear you on the busy time of year. Very glad you got it up and running! Hopefully you can hit the streets pretty soon and really give it a test. I figured I would come thru the core support, but was unsure where I'd wind up mounting the filter. Let us know how the filter does. I think it will be okay there...inner fender will block most moisture and junk kicked up.

    I've got injectors for the truck showing up tonight...once I can stab the motor back in I will get back on the cars. So many parts just sitting around, lol.

    Fwiw, ProCharger is what I would be going with...Still 40/60 for forced induction vs a big cam stroker.

    The 90* elbow that I used has a small air inlet on the side. It just happens to fit the intake air temperature sensor great. I stuck a clamp on it just to hold it tight.

    The TorqueStorm doesn't flow a lot of CFM (this is why they offer a dual supercharger setup) which means I would have to spin it faster and I would prefer a larger unit that I could spin slower to provide the same CFM / PSI. The other reason is I have talked with them on the phone a couple times and the guy was a little rude once. If he is a little rude when I'm a potential customer then I would imagine it would be bad after the purchase. I may be completely wrong, this is just the impression I got.
    If I go with a supercharger it will be a procharger from the supercharger store. They have a great reputation from what I have seen.
    I am now thinking about leaving it naturally aspirated and putting in a small stroker crank and making it a 505 cu in. I can't leave anything alone, even when it functions just fine. Any of these options will be a few years down the road.

    I finished up the plumbing for the air inlet. The air filter is mounted directly in front of the drivers side tire. Hopefully it will get some cooler air over there.
