elints- I like the Edelbrock. Real easy to tune in. I think they come a bit rich out of the box, but setting it up is cake. No hesitations, stumbles, nada, it's perfectly smooth under all conditions.

Torch, it's just a base model 350 truck engine. I call it my grandma crate:laughing:

Dave, I'd have to check the receipts, but roughly around 15K, give or take. The biggest single bites were labor for the wiring harnesses, engine install, and hood paint. I did everything else myself.
