Mainly heads if you dont mind saying. As I want to get Pro Toplines Stage 3s 64cc, angled plugs, 200cc intake would be nice if they can be CNC Machined. But I'm running fuel injection so might be a little different with me running your style heads.

i will tell you anything you need to know, all i know is by measuring the valves they are 2.02/ 1.60s, they are cast iron, but im not sure about the brand, the casting numbers had been ground smooth before i got the car.
if i had to guess they are GM performance?? but i dont know

got some more done. throttle cable, radiator hoses and cusions, and water neck and thermostat.

flatend a old throttle bracket to put under the new one and it isnt even visable and it is stronger and lines up way better.

also twisted the mount for the transmission dipstick to mount on firewall it wouldnt fit to the intake manifold

got the throttle cable and Kickdown routed and working, and (GOON and HYDRO) i DID NOT drill the hole just cut it and left it like it is in the 2nd pic on page 1 of this topic, thats what my neighbor sayed they do with the cars at work, hes a master mechanic sayed itll be fine, i was only going to cut a hone in the floor so it would be hidden more out of the firewall not cut a hole in the firewall.
