Just collecting parts. Picked up a few things today. I hope to get it on the milling machine next week. Then it'* just a shot of chrome paint and it'* all done. All I need yet is a few gaskets. I should be ordering the last of my parts this weekend. That will be about $900.

I'm also going to port the inlet a bit more. I want 73mm at a minimum. After I check a few things, I may go to 75mm

I also have more parts on the way. I should have them by mid week, I hope. I should get pictures by Thursday.

Turned out nice, pictures just don't do it justice. Now I just need my order to come in and I'll get it all together. I'm even touching up the bolt heads.

The vacuum ports and the PCV valve cover are black, so the bolts are chrome. The bolts on the supercharger will be black where ever the are on chrome.
