Car crazy here

Hi all,
Currently working on my first engine rebuild for my 1962 Impala. It's a SBC 350 with a speedpro CS1169R cam and 943 valve springs. Edelbrock performer intake and matching 650 carb. Still has'nt been fired up yet and hope to do so this week.
Hope she sounds good with shorty headers and set of glasspacks.
Hope the install go's easy. I also plan on swapping the tranny to the 350 TG that came with the engine. Any input and help will be greatly appreciated. I know I will have tons of questions so glad I'm here.
I also have a 1980 Mercedes Benz 450SL that is in pristine condition. Awesome ride.

Yes welcome....and just in case you don't know (???) make sure you use an additive in your oil, like ZDDP+ and prelube your oil pump before you fire it up. If needed do a search for "engine break in" lots of info...good luck.
