Considering the car only had a 2 bbl. sitting on a 60 lb. iron manifold the 600 cfm is most likely a huge improvement. All the head work, totally hogged intake & exhaust. Yes mild comp L476 D270. On paper should be putting out at flex plate 1 hp. per cube. it's a 395 now. Runs great, smooth, nice lope. If I wanted big power would have dropped a 455 in her. Remember the car is for my better half, she did not need big power, heck it's all she can do to run a leaf blower !!! !!!!!

so have you had a chance to drive it?
I went back over the pictures and I see what I believe is an MSD coil mounted sideways?
If so read the link, NOTES, concerning it only should be mounted vertically

Morning Mel,

No have not driven it as of yet. Just had another storm, everything covered in mud and snow. Need to install rear spring spacers for better tire fitment and raise her up just a bit. You are probably correct about the coil, I will revisit mounting options. Once all is dried up she will go down to the pavement and make sure the brakes work properly. SOON !!!!

Hey all,

She drives great, occasionally have to touch the steering wheel. Plenty of power and smooth as silk. I am very surprised at what a pleasure the Cat is to drive.

Mel I relocated the coil.....

And here's the best part. Took her to the first show last weekend. Who would of guessed !!!!
