Small Block Chevy Engine

With the hood popped off the truck you get a glimpse of the engine cage that protects the small block Chevy V-8 and provides added support for the front suspension. A 350 V-8 was used, but freshened up and is a bit warmed over with the addition of a set of World Products SR Torquer heads that Scott ported/polished and blueprinted. Comp Cams roller rockers are pushed by a Comp XE hydraulic cam. Induction comes via an Edelbrock Victor Jr. intake topped with a Holley 750 double-pumper carb. Ignition chores are handled with an MSD billet distributor and 6AL ignition module. A Canton oil pan with wingdage screen helps keep the oil cooled and down in the sump at all times. A bigger, badder motor is in the works and will be finished as funds allow.
