Thanks

Hoping for somewhere in the region of 800hp/900lbft - and then when I break the block I'll replace it with a Dart one!

I'm not sure that will be enough power...

Well the turbos are capable of breaking the 4 figure barrier - but I like to be sensible about these things!

Finally finished that pulley and fitted it! Tomorrow finishing the alternator and PS pump mounts and measuring up for the belts.

Then I'll have a look at sorting out the wiring for the water pump, alternator and fuel pumps.

I managed to get the steering pump trial fitted and get it lined up with the crank pulley. Had to modify the fluid feed tube, but it's only pushed into the body of the pump and came out surprisingly easily. I need to add a bend on the end of it toward the inner fender in order to keep the pipework neat and tidy. The pump came off a 5th gen Camaro, but I think it's the same as fitted to many late model GM cars, but I wanted one specifically with the multi-rib pulley. I just need to make some proper spacers (1/4" thick) and paint the bracket to finish the installation.



I didn't get as far as sorting the alternator alignment before it got dark. Really must move the car into the workshop....

Please ignore the rusty engine block.... I'll be fixing that when I swap engines out later in the year. Only I'll be painting the next one with 2k...!
