Been a while since I checked in. Congrats on an outstanding restoration and driving it now! I'm still several months away from driving mine. Hopefully, by the end of summer or early fall before the snow flies. I've got three questions for you if you have time:
1. Since our engine builds are exhaust systems are almost identical with the exception of rocker arms and heads (I used Promax heads and the PRW rockers) did you ever get get your engine dyno'd and if so what were the nos?
2. I'm about ready to buy new tires for my "Cuda and also plan on running BF Goodrich TA radials on 15 " OEM 7" Ralley wheels. What size tires did you run on the front and back and are your rear rims 7"s? The rear wheels look wider than the front wheels. Guess that was two questions.
3. I'm also running the TTI 3" exhaust. Did you use the TTI 3" polished exhaust tips or did you use somebody else tips?
Hey brad, thanks for the kind words! Sounds like you're almost there on your build, congrats and looking forward to seeing it.
Answers to your questions -
1- no, my dyno appointment was cancelled by the shop (frustrating memory) and I didn't want to wait for the next one so I went ahead and put it in the car and fired it up. Given the components of the engine and what I picked up from builders, I just estimate it out at around 600hp at the crank.
Front rim - 15x7
Rear rim - 15x8
Front tire - 245 50
Rear tire - 275 60
3- yes, it's TTI exhaust including headers with 2" primaries back to 3" inch exhaust, X, and out to TTI stainless tips. Love it
Hope that helps!
