Hope you'll do a video when you fire the engine up and post it here! I'd like to hear the sound of that cam/engine combo!
I'm putting together another tunnel rammed engine for my present project; a '63 Falcon gasser. Using a 454 with Weiand oval port tunnel to match up with the Edelbrock oval port heads, and twin 600 cfm Holleys. I put an 8.8" Ford in back with 3.73 posi, to make it more enjoyable on the street, but still make it run good at the strip. A Super T10 inbetween, just because I miss shifting a stick!

11.97 1/4 ET best to date. Just getting back into it at 63. Forgot a lot and have a lot to learn but having a ball doing it. I drive my cars. Vette, blown 350 29 Ford coupe and the Willys. Building a blown 350 for the Willys now. Poor old 98 Ford pick-up just sets there. lol Even drive to the track, 85 miles (Mokan) or 130 (Tusla). Thing is, have fun with what ya got. Some of the guys on here are very competitive and only do track time so their advise does not take the street into consideration.

All my stuff is street driven and track raced. My tuneup is exactly the same.
I never even lift the hood at the track other than to allow the engine to cool between rounds.

When it is right it is right. That is a beauti car for sure...Fang16

Everything I recomend is for a street driven car. Then take it to the track, bolt on your slicks, set the tire presure and hang on.
The tuneup is exactly the same.

Slicks!? lol No room to carry them, even in my little trailer I pull behind my Willys. Old guy at the track told me one day, seen a lot of Willys on a trailer, never saw one pulling one! lol Running M/T street radials now. Maybe I'll get a car trailer and put some miles on my pick-up. lol Will take the fun outta drivin' to the track tho.
