Engine Complete and broken in.

I thought I was done. Car rides and handles great with lots of power. But a stroker motor I built years ago has become available, and will go into this car. I will need to upgrade the fuel system, stronger rear end, install hydraboost braking system, and make a long water pump engine fit. Photos to follow.
