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.

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

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.

Crosswinds by professional products

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.
