And here's the motor build....nice piece....

This is an interesting paragraph from the build....
"In its final (to date) 790hp configuration, this engine is capable of propelling a 3,000-pound car with a professional-level chassis into the 8.90s at 150-plus mph. But if I had to pick one all-round best combo out of this entire marathon, one that is equally at home on the street or at the strip, it would be the 694hp/694-lb-ft mid-level combo where the engine was equipped with Brodix Race-Rite oval-port heads, the Lunati solid roller Voodoo cam with 255/263 duration at 0.050, Hooker headers with 2-inch primaries by 31/2-inch collectors, and the Holley 950-cfm Ultra HP carburetor atop the Wilson-modified Edelbrock Victor Jr. intake. This combo ran well from 2,500 to 6,500 rpm, producing 694 lb-ft at 4,800 and 694 hp at 5,800 rpm. It averaged more than 633 lb-ft and nearly 543 hp through the overall curve. This kind of output is still enough to drive our proverbial 3,000-pound car to a potential 9.30-second, 144-mph quarter-mile e.t. Back in the '70s, that was Pro Stock territory-now it's the ultimate street/strip Godzilla terror"
