RalphXL is starting off with a positive reputation.
When I put the motor in I cheaped out and reused a set of intake gaskets, and it bit me in the butt. I have been thinking about adding the 800hp Fitech EFI system down the road. So, I figured I would use a Victor 460 intake that I already had. I did some port work on it, painted it and installed it. Should be a bit easier to deal with one carb, not that the Carter 750 carbs are that hard to tune. This intake allows me to use a much larger air filter, which should be good for an offroad type vehicle. I'll have to get an offset filter base, the filter I'll get is 14 x 5". The carb I have on there now is a Predator with the idle circuit.

Looking good, sometimes working on these projects is the best therapy.
