Now he can make some "click - click- wRRRR" sounds to go along with the "brummm - brummm" sounds

Nice to see you are using the trans (and blanket)!

I was pretty happy to see how it all came together so smoothly. Thanks for hooking me up with the trans.

Eventually Brummmmmmmm - click -click- wRRR  - "Pawssssst" - brummmmmm :). I was going to take it for a spin down the back lane. The motor was running awesome, Ran it through the gears on the stand, every thing worked well shifted gears nicely. Then  before the drive I decided to put the long tube header on it and it would not run right, I think there was a big vacuum leak somewhere :(. I played with it for a while with no luck, then decided what is the point of getting it to run nice as I am changing the whole intake and exhaust any ways when I turbo the motor. The long tube header was just for its flange to build a turbo manifold but when I bolted it up I realized the design was too poorly made the exhaust ports did not line up very well probably also caused the vacuum leak since it shares mounting bolts with the intake manifold.

All the removable sheet metal parts were blasted clean by "blast it" using a dustless media blasting with glass beads. The parts came out clean and rust free with no warping. Then I epoxy primed all the parts:

Oh man... a blow-through turbo on a carb? I can see that being a complete jetting/fueling nightmare to get running properly.

After filming I was already contemplating an efi once I stumbled on the holly efi stuff compatible with the 4 cyl motors. still in planning stages on this though. Either way I can carb it then go to an holly efi system later. The draw through carb would have been easiest but working with what I have already.
