    I got lucky on some of my parts the headers were used for about 5k (guy wraped his mustang around pole) got them for $40, got the cam new for around 35 guy baught it then blew up his engine and sold the cam before getting to install it same with the heads but I spent around 200 or so on those but all the work was done on them he was about 500 deep in them

    I ripped the fuel injection out and went carb.

    I got the parts from guys I know and trust from local car seen. I live in hotrod heaven man speedway motors is located here. And america cerise comes here like every year

    I had to much down time so sapping to carb was no problem. Besides that I'm oldschool when it comes to cars the only way you'll get me having a comp in my car is if its got a turbo and even then is go carb if I can.

    My engine is ventage 1970' s mt aluminum finned valve covers with twist in chrome breathers the intake is from the 70s too
