      Custom radiator and electric fan I'm sure... I know nothing about installing a mod motor in these but..........

      You gotta post pics of it when you do, cause this just sounds wicked.

      I'm hoping you got more time, fab skills, and money to burn to pull this off. Mostly cause it just sounds expensive.

      this should be moved to the modified 2nd gen category.

      Welcome to the forum.

      yea im looking forward to it from what i understand the only stock part of this motor and tranny are the case and block every thing else is be rebuilt to be stronger, the rearend has also been regeared so im really lookin forward to a nasty sleeper i wanna blow peoples minds with this, the motor tranny combo is about 5G's and the extra parts will run me another 2 or 3 so we r looking at about 9 grand and 6-8 months of work here, and as to moving threads im not sure how to do that im fresh at this whole blogging thing
