    Here's a mock up of the TDR426 intake manifold with the fuel injection sitting on top. There's still some fitting to do before I plumb it but I'm happy with the way its looking.

    I've finished scratching an adapter to mate the GZ bellhousing to the TDR426.

    Looking good, Rick.

    I've painted the block "Hemi Orange" and the heads in aluminum. I smoothed the sides of the heads but not the fronts because they will be covered with accessories. The timeing cover has been detailed with Dan's accessory bolts. The valve covers are ready for installation and I've done up a magneto from the parts box. Next up will be detailing and plumbing The Coupe the F.I. intake.

    Ya I know Grumps, I've gone against my grain with the chrome valve covers. Go ahead, have at me.

    Rick.......the engine looks great, I do have one question though.......................
    Do you have some dark, disturbing reason for installing the oil pan backwards? The oil pick-up is on the front of a 426 along with the distributor (mag), oil filter and dipstick.
