389 build

This is a shot of my fresh 389 build. I have some detail work to do in the engine compartment but she's in there and runs strong.:)
The Crosswinds intake manifold raises the carb up about 1 1/2 inch above the stock intake, good thing the hood still closes.:thumbup:

Did you block the heat cross over under the intake? Also what rear gear do you plan on teaming with that cam?

LATECH 04-18-2013 04:30 PM

The intake blocks the heat crossover and is assisted by a Mr. Gasket intake set with the metal patch for over the hole too.
The stock rear in it is a 3.23 8.2 rear.
I will be upgrading to a LSD in the future. I am going to add a LSD carrier to the 8.2 untill it pukes, if it does, then I will move on to something stronger like an 8.5 or 12 bolt, maybe a moser or strange. We will see.
I have a few bugs to work out this weekend and I am hoping to go on its maiden cruise next week sometime after I tag it.

This is a crosswind intake by professional products. Quality is very good. Casting is clean and has no flash, runners looked good, also has about 1 1/2 inches of rise over stock P4B.:D
