My last motor build coming together . Was a quick 1 month turnaround, but it felt good hitting that point where I knew I was just a few hours away from hearing it roar again.

Forged 302 3 valve. Behind it to the right you can see the twinscrew for it.

My GF managed to pick almost the perfect color from a wall of rattle cans for me to spray paint the valve covers with.

This would be mine. Smokey Yunick's 209 cubic inch twin turbo charged small block chevy. This engine made around 1300 horsepower on alcohol. And in Smokey's words "More mid range torque than I would care to talk about"

I like that photo, a work in progress.

That is so damn awesome! Now mind you, I am no SBC fan, but this is SMOKEY for goodness sakes. I find myself staring at that photo just picking out all the interesting things. Check out the breathers on the tops of the valve covers. It has one of those big rectangular Mallary coils like I had on my truck when I was a kid. DAMN that is so friggin cool.

I will never forget talking to him on the phone about a motor he had for sale. He really loved to talk. LOL And I was more than happy to listen.

My favorite is my current build. Still a lot to do but I hope to have it in the car and running by late spring. Note the lack of chrome.

Big torque, I love it.

Nolan, that is a wild site, holy crap. I love the turbo charger. Never ran one but sure love what they produce and the look is muscular.

LOLOL, you made me laugh this morning. Remember, it CAN be your favorite engine but that doesn't make it your favorite engine PHOTO.

Just kidding, it's all good. Yeah Subaru produces some pretty nice cars.

I know it's big but you can see some distortion in the hinges on the sides of the photo because of a less than 50mm lens. At least thats what I am thinking with this very limited photography brain I have. I am certainly no pro but I think that is what I am seeing.

I didn't realize what kind of motor it was, that has got to be one of the oddest engine swaps ever. There was a guy in my local that had a chopped top 63ish Ford Falcon Ranchero with a flat head in it! I love those goofy swaps.
