I'm priming :jumping:  heads are in,going on tomarow!!   Engine is almost complete.  Looks like I will be REALLY busy  this weekend.  The alterkation is a thing of beauty!  The welds are some of the best I have ever seen.And I've seen alot!  I'm extremely excited to get her rolling. With the front suspension here I'm closer than ever now.Just about to order brakes.That's o.k. need time to powdercoat the K and arms. Get to paint.  2008 Viper red is the color.  :woo:     I'll be in the garage  :icon16: :working:

That's awesome that you went with the alterkation kit!!  What cam specs are you going with on the 340?  You'll be tearin' up those evo's!  :burnout:

Nice work!

can't post pics  :banghead:  Drivn' me nuts  :aarg:  arrrr.     Final prime this week.Lots of little things to fix in there.Front suspension is at powder coating. I went with everything silver in color. Should look good. My goal is to be completely assembled by the end of the month. Minus engine/trans./brakes. The engine is together,still need a carb....The cam specs. are .477 lift.  I'm considering the 800 eddy,or 750 holley. Prob. the AVS.  800 too big?   Things are happening around here! :working:  THANK YOU FOR THE COMMENTS!!   :bigsmile:

Front suspension is at powder coating.

Since I'll be looking for a powdercoater near Boulder/Denver also for the same type of things, who did you go with? Let me know how it turns out  :bigsmile:
Thanks, Wes

I submit that an 800 carb is too much!  You didn't outline the full cam specs, but with .477 lift it doesn't sound TOO raunchy.  The duration is a better measure of what carb to go with, but of course that isn't the only consideration.  Have you looked at a BG Demon?  Maybe a 650 "Speed Demon"...

With that said, if you don't want to tinker with the carb every time mother nature changes moods - get the Eddy :)
