    Small update

    Did some misc wiring, and summit sent me the non efi valve covers in exchange. I also built my switch panel inside for the MSD box, Fuel pump, and Electric fan.

    Current update

    I fired it up, she runs great and sounds great! this week I started cleaning up things a bit. I have 99% of the wiring done, just have to get some wire looms. Ive decided to do a factory color repaint, instead of changing colors. I stripped all the engine accessories from my 86' vert, and took the H pipe off and the mufflers. I took the flows to a local shop and had them put some turndowns on them instead of tailpipes. anyhow heres a couple pics.

    Thanks guys, I still have a bit more to do, I will probably do some around town driving with it this weekend. Might also drop it off at a local mechanic so he can pull vac on a/c system and charge it. After I get everything lined out I will send it to body shop for a slick paint job.

    p.s. I don't like how my pretty aluminum heads are hidden now :(

    I must also add while people are looking at this. If you plan on doing a carb conversion, Get the MSD distributor, it is very easy to wire up with a 6al box or equivalent, and it has a steel gear for use with roller cams.

    looks real nice, and i bet she runs hard. only thing negative i can say is you have all the shiny new stuff, but then all the accesory's and brackets are dirty. otherwise it looks great!

    I agree with my accessories being dirty, my plans are to get new stuff and billet/polished brackets in the future, I ran outta money for the time being. Thanks for all the comments
