Its really an 80's cheeseball pro street build, that was complete with teal paint and pink stripes....its going to be a beater hotrod for me that is about as brutal as I can afford. I had said elswhere, if i can get this big pig into a mid, or god help me low 12, i would be exstatic. And if I could run a BBC with an 871 I would, believe me....but I do have a thing for tunnel rams and with no hood I'm absolutely stoked about this build....so yes....I may have been a tad defensive lol....for that I apologize.
I was pretty blunt about my opinion, so I see why you were defensive about it.
Your setup will look pretty cool in that chassis. I'm not knocking ya.
It's just that from a "performance standpoint", I never did like tunnel rams on street engines.
Don't let anyone stop you from building your dream.
