    dual clutch transmission

    The beauty of the replica car is the opportunity to do as one pleases or budgets allow. If you can squeeze it in and it warms your heart go for it.

    dual clutch transmission

    Pushrod question???

    Squid: I agree with Scottiec. Did you check for proper pushrod length (rocker tip contact pattern)? Valve to piston clearance? If all these are

    Yeah man. I reached out. On the plus side, have you painted a car with a dart 363? I bet it will look cool in your shop while you are painting mine! LOL

    Pushrod question???

    Heard a clicking noise that became progressively louder on the passenger bank of my 302. Pulled the valve cover and checked all the rockers and pushrods.

    3 turn rack for me as well. Seems to be the general consensus for a streetcar and I’m happy with how it works. Quick enough without being twitchy.

    If you've not had an problem with them rubbing in 3000 miles, it might not be an issue. The bottom of the tire is what flex's the most when hard cornering.

    347 engine choice

    They both look like nice motors but I think I'd go with the Dart block all else being equal. Plus Mike's will be more of a custom build that you could

    347 engine choice

    Mike’s 347 is a Dart block. He can also make a 347 mild to wild as you like by changing internals. He built my 351 and when he ran out of E303 cam,

    Awesome and super helpful. The cam is deep rabbit hole. I am considering contacting Ed Curtis of FTI since he has a great reputation for custom cams.
