Top end is all new with 2 passes. Bottom end refreshed with new rings, bearings, oil pump and gaskets before head swap just for the new season. Price is $2800. I have more than this in Parts and Machine work. Still have most of the receipts (somewhere). I will make a good package deal with the Demon carb, and the car with transmission. Just need a torque convertor to go racing. I had it sold and the buyer backed out today.

From the cam up is all new. It has only 2, 1/8 mile dragstrip passes plus the break in time in the shop. I was building a 408 and planned to reuse the topend, but I found another Malibu project and don't want something this ratical.

On a side note . Can I ask how well the brakes worked without the booster? Wondering how was the pedal with that MC.

The brakes were fair. That is the stock master for power brakes. Basically felt a little better than having no vaccum on the booster. I have the manual master cyl but havent switched it yet.

It made 2- 8.20 1/8 mile passes. Now the excuses..... I didnt have the alternator on the car and my battery charger died at the track. It was breaking up on the top end due to low voltage. I also was running a 650 carb and only ran it thru 2nd gear (4.11 and 28" tire). I added the alt. and 750 Demon but due to life in general and weather I never made another pass at the track. The 2 lane "dragstrip" infront of the house proved the problem was fixed tho.

Will include the waterpump, mini starter and CS130 alt with low mount bracket. I can also bring this with me to the Gbody Nationals but only with a deposit.
