    Guessing...Oh boy, I like guessing. Ok Well the engine was only produced from 67 to 69 (360HP out of the box), so Balanced bottom end, Keith Black rods, Keith black pistons, Crane cam (Lumpy), Dart heads, Edelbrock intake, 2" rise, 750 Holley double pump, double feed, mechanical secondaries.
    Am I warm yet..?

    nah cableguy, it's more like a 1150CFM holley dual feed double pumper, add on comp cams lifters and rockers, hooker headers long tubes with a free flowing exhaust, then we might be cooking with fire ;) ...Iunno bout what he's got, I just think he probably has a bigger carb on it than that.

    well, as of today, the engine was removed from the regal, and set into the olds.
    fit pretty good
    only took an hour and a half to do it. I'll post a pic tomorrow, right now....I'm POOPED!!

    it wasn't easy guiding the engine/trans, and rolling the car into position by myself, but I got r done
