Got some C5OE '65 Shelby heads here I'm gonna do some grinding on - aim is 450hp on a stealth 347 that looks like the original Shelby engine (it's a real deal GT500 mustang, original matching numbers engine is going into a safe corner & a 'period correct' 347 going in to wake it up a bit).

Very nice, that should make for a nicer drive mate!
I like a good stealth build

In his shop DV had the 66 289's on the grinding bench when I got there. He was doing some interesting chamber mods. The other sets of heads for the shootout that I saw are finished and loaded with valves and springs. He didn't have a firm date for dyno days. Thanks, Charlie
