    Hope this works. It's not the best quality vid but at least you get an idea of how savage it sounds. Should sound good with a decent set of flowmasters.

    Actually sounded quite similar to yours,

    The car is nearing completion. interior wiring exhaust and the usual odds & ends required. This car was a rotisserie resto rod deal, but it's getting there.

    The engine combo's were quite similar IIRC.

    Unfortunately he allowed the trans builder to talk him into a 3.5k stall, when the engine was designed for 4.5k,, Th400.

    The cam in this one is custom grind,, but I would expect you will be closer to the mark with your cam & converter than he will...... I see a converter change in his future {soothsayer]

    I may be mixed up here just looked back through this thread & did not see all the engine specs,,,, in particular the cam specs so the above comment about your combo
    may not be valid

    Just a little update. Fitted my new door seals and boot seal and now for the hard part, I didn't pay too much attention when stripping the doors so not looking forward to fitting them out again. If anyone knows of a tutorial or a thread that could help i'd be much obliged. Stall is on the way from dominator 8" 5000rpm so should be able to get my donk in by the end of next break.

    Front doors fitted out with glass, locks, handles and new seals. I should have really made a thread on this as the manual doesn't show much and I couldn't find a lot on it. The trick I found was to put the window in pointing almost straight down front first and put the front guide on inside the door then stand it up inside and locate the 2 rollers on the actuator. The first door took about 3 hours then the second only took about 20 min.
