Yes thats the plan. Before I always had the thought of the rubi 44s not holding up in the back of my mind. Hopefully I won't have to worry quite so much now.

Oh and thanks

Well I am slowly making progress. I got the rest of the frame up front stripped of the brackets, motor mounts & coil buckets. I also got the engine close to where it needs to go. I just need to make up some motor mounts and get it to go back another 2" or so.

Yep 350 with 91 Chevy tbi setup with a stand alone AFI harness & computer. I also have a LT1 that I decided that I'm not going to use if anyone is interested in it.

I have been collecting parts & getting my axles prepped. I traded off the 42" TSLs for 38.5" SXs which will fit my needs better.

I also got my rear axle in to position to take some measurements. Here is my 4 link calculator.....
