    I think I am going to go with a set of 180* headers. A few videos on YouTube have convinced me that the sound is worth the install/fitting hassle.

    It will involve some pretty significant cutting

    Mild progress - working on small bodywork issues here and there on the shell and picked up some new front tires and almost new rears for super cheap. 205/50r15’s and 215/60r15’s. I am likely going to buy some wider repro Fuchs at some point with fatter tires so this is really just to get it going for now.

    I have decided to build a mild 283 (or 327) with as little torque as possible and max rpm. The small journal early Chevy motors can definitely spin pretty high with not a ton of work. By high I mean 6500-7000 rpm.

    I found some freshly redone 283/327 “power pack” heads with aftermarket beehive springs and aluminum keepers which should help with these goals. Super cheap deal $50 for the pair and ready to bolt on on and go.
