Thanks Rick, if all goes well should be as nice as the 71 SS 454 I had at Mcacn. I was really happy with how the paint went down on that car.

Default Gardner Exhaust

I opted for a Gardner Exhaust. Very happy with fitment and ease of install.

Default Fuel Line Setup

I was gonna throw out there that I can offer a correct functional fuel pump, elbow and line setup if anyone is interested. I had to take the fuel pump and properly machine it to accept the 90 deg brass elbow. I made a custom line from several original 66l78 pictures I had been given. I then had a company cnc bend my template. Turned out very nice. Please PM if your interested in a setup, or just the line.

Before I get caught, yes I took the Towanda sticker off as 66 didnt get them!

UNLESS there was a SW ratio adapter on the different transmissions wouldn't the trans more closely relate to the rear end ratio's given the different driven gears in the trans for the speedo? Or were the driven gears changed according to the rear gears in the car?
