Yeah rockers are going to be the same price no matter what since I am going with T&D or Jesel shaft mounts.

Dammit. I'll start thinking of ways to move them over. Plugging the holes isn't a problem, but drilling the new ones correctly is!

Mission creep! :roll: :wink: :mrgreen:

Seems silly to have that localized high speed air. The csa had been radically changed so the csa needs to be used as efficiently as possible. If Chad has the room I am sure he will find the quantity and quality airflow to make all this work worth it.

The irony here is I could have bolted on a set of stock Edelbrock heads and still made more power than the car will ever be able to run LOL. All this is basically superfluous.

Right tool for the job makes all the difference. 24W torch FTW.

Quick comparison of the SSR before and after welding. Raised about 0.100" at the current throat; a little more with the throat opened for the bigger valves.

Id love to know how much filler rod you have in these so far! Nice project. Even if you can buy something that will do the job off the shelf, its just so much more impressive to modify a seemingly inferior part and make the power.

Ha! I should weigh them when I'm done. Maybe I don't want to know.

Chad, you got some time this week for a phone call?
