With 8 throttle bodies, Al, Im expecting it to jump out of its skin every time i touch it. I might have to detune it off idle to avoid rear ending every car in front of me...haha

Thanks Al, i like my workspace clean but selling a house means its VERY clean.

I can only judge how it goes with the throttle response once i get it on the road, i can tune it out to a small degree.
The individual throttle bodies are always an issue when on individual runners, especially on smaller cube engines, the manifold has a large plenum designed into it to help absorb some of that twitchy response.
Similar to running a carby on tunnel rams, we had many discussions about it in the design phase.
Tony's done an amazing job to get it above & beyond what i was hoping for, the keyboard heroes said it would be boggy down low, no torque, HP would drop off too quick up top, hard to tune, trumpets were wank factor, blah blah.
Well they can suck it...420ft.lb at 3000rpm is good enough for my little 1200kg Nova running 4:11's.

I didn't build the pickup, bought it as is, I should've posted all the work I've done to it though. I put the Holley Sniper on recently and am loving it, super reliable for a daily driver now.

Hey Fellas
Sittin on top of the world at the moment, the Nova has passed the torsion & beam testing without any visible signs of stress or damage. ThankFk - many sleepless nights panicking about that....
I have some minor items to clear up as work proceeds but from here on in its all go.

Engine & trans are already in, next items....
tail shaft
front end alignment
finish wiring inside & the engine loom under the dash
fit the fuel tank, filler & fuel lines
new top shocker mounts & fit new coil overs
fit up hand brake cables & rear brake hoses
Then probably off for exhaust
Then back to the panel shop for front sheetmetal to make it look like a car !!
You can expect some updates coming soon

Hi Pete.

Sorry for the late reply - I just saw this now.

Yeah it's going good. Don't get out in it very often though. Still need to change the agricultural rear gears as they don't match the cam and the stally. Have the parts, just not confident to change them myself, so will probably get someone to do it for me.

You moving ? Where to ?

Cheers Damon, colour pics is coming mate. Waiting to do a mini reveal for my Hot Rod Club so everything has been kept under wraps until then.

Hi Frank.
Its easier to pay the experts than stuff it up if you're not confident, either that or get expert help.
We've actually bought the house across the road and planning a 2 dwelling subdivision. Supposedly down sizing.... but to a bigger house - smaller block.[COLOR="Silver"]

Hi Peter,
Still following your build. Awesome engine!
And still holding my breath waiting for the color reveal!
Glad to hear the body passed all tests.
Keep it up

Maybe i shouldn't build the suspense too much...it is only a paint job after all, everyone has one.
