750DP and a Performer. Chokes not hooked up but it dont need it. The cam is a Comp with 211/223 @ .050 and 484/510 on a 110. Big dump truck mufflers and a 2 1/2" driveway exhaust system. Typical 460. 80 pounds oil pressure cold at idle and about 15 warmed up.

Its a .030 over 73' Low compression 460. Measured out at 8.3:1. D3 heads I spent some time with a die grinder and back cut the valves. I have about $1500 in the whole motor. Trans is a used C6 from a van with a Transgo stage 2 kit. Works great.

Minor update. I put a Pertronix Ignitor kit in it Last week. Drove it to work all week. The difference is amazing. Cold starts are way better and it just purrs on the freeway.
