    I had the intake chrome powder coated along with a few other items. I also had my pullys,brackets, and misc parts redone on satin black powdercoat. Basically a fluff and buff on everything from the heads up.

    It sure does. Mine was only down since last fall. I'm sure you had a bigger smile on your face after getting yours up and running.

    Scorpion Full roller rockers, Comp cams lifters, cam, springs, and push rods. Polished and ported heads and intake. Gasket matched. I think I'm going to get a different carb. Cannot seem to get the well plugs sealed up right. Very hard to start up once it's warm.
