The little bastard hauls! The muffler was plugged, so I cut it of and got three exaust tips two with "beveled" rims and welded them together, so it is kinda like a glass pack, and doesn't pop at all sounds really deep like a V8, cut the intake box bottom out, played with the manual boost controller, gutted the car. fun to drive now I just need intercooler hose to hook up intercooler as well as wire my fan up to it. anyway who did to motor build with carbed pistons, how did it work has it lasted so far? anyone know where I can get a carberated shortblock with low or no miles how much? what should I do performance wise next?

How was it powerwise? any big leap in power? Is it worth it. I am making a drift car/ street car, so would it be reliable enough for that/ Not my daily driver. I want some mile outta the engine if I build it.
