My restoration book arrived in the mail!  One of those keepsake things and something to put on the front of the car when at shows.

Including a special shot out to all of you that have helped me!

Been a while since I checked in.  Congrats on an outstanding restoration and driving it now!  :2thumbs:  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?

Thanks
