The 350 is installed. Test fitting the turbos. The company I purchased the kit from sent the wrong headers. Have to send these ones back. Going to create around a two-week delay in this part of the project to get the correct headers in. We will continue to focus on the new paint and the four wheel disc brake install.

Awesome build.
I hope you get out of paint-jail and engine-jail soon.
I'm curious what you have planned for engine bay heat management.
Air vents, etc.
I highly recommend jet-hot coatings on any of the headers, etc, they coat inside and out, I can touch my headers literally minutes after driving.

That's a very nice shop you have there, all those cars/bikes in process must keep you busy. Is the SS a keeper?

Also, this is not my shop. This is at a custom car shop called Pot O'Gold Kustoms. They do excellent work and have been featured on Velocity Channel. Great place and Great people!

Fired up the engine yesterday and it flat out sounds EVIL! Also decided to add a FiTech fuel injection system to it. Getting closing to finishing it. Getting the inter-cooler plumbing work done next week

Not sure yet Justin. Once the project is complete and all bugs ironed out, I will take a look at my total investment in it and come up with a sales price

how are you controlling spark with a big cap distributor like that?

Well done no time was wasted on this one. the 350 with twin turbos is something I wasn't expecting. Great work!
