BTW, these are goodmark fenders. They are not bad but comparing them to the originals, the back of the fenders where they are suppose to meet the doors, the GM ones are significantly off. This stand is going to help me fix that  :bigsmile:

Wow, cool stand!

BTW - how do you like your stroked 340? Mine is also stroked to 416, although I have yet to get it running. I am running a comp roller cam, Edelbrock heads and a EFI 6-pack system as well as TTI headers. I am looking forward to hearing it run.

It's great.  My 416 was built as a street motor, more for just burning the tires.   :burnout:  The build is conservative but reliable. I originally wanted Eddy heads on it but it was not in the budget at the time and now that I have driven it all these years I am completely fine with the way it runs and I don't want to mess with it.  My favorite thing about it is that it has a Mopar Performance 484 cam in it (108LSA) and it has a really mean idle.  :bigsmile:  I get a lot of comments at stoplights about how cool the car sounds.

What the specs on your cam?  Is it a hydraulic or solid?

Whoa, same grind but I'm running a big block.

Guess the grind will work either way. Kinda crazy.

What I'm impressed with is the amount of vacuum I still get with this one.
