    Nice looking car. We were at the Waynesboro Motorsports Car Show with our two 77s recently. It's a shame we couldn't have met.

    Is it too big? I don't see why it wouldn't fit it is still a small block 350. Maybe I don't know something.

    That looks real nice. I'm doing more of a stock look. Black with the orange z28 stripes. Same grille tho. Looks nice on there.

    I put the decals on before [​IMG]I left for the fourth. Here's how they turned out.

    The high rise intake can cause hood clearance issues.

    Ended up doing the engine swap, she looks BEAutiful now. Was a lot of work, but it turned out great. Had to get a low clearance air cleaner due to clearance issues with the higher intake manifold, but it adds a little flare. I think i might get it powder coated to match other orange components eventually. Lot of cool bells and whistles on this thing now, and it burns a little bit of rubber when you give 'er gas from a stop. So much fun to drive. I would love to do it again (on another car) :)

    That turned out pretty well .Have thought of extending the air cleaner forward beyond the radiator core support .And into the cold air Or making you hood scoop functional ( there is a way to do it).I had a Performer intake on my 1979 Z-28 RS.and it was taller .But I made it fit.

    Have thought about extending them but don’t really need or want to. It works just fine as it is. I have electric dual fan on the rad that pulls a ton of air.
