All V6 and V8 chevy engines 1965-present. The engine specs might have changed but the bellhousing flanges are all the same.

not a big fan of that wing, but with that sorta engine swap i guess your gonna need that downforce when your reachin speed only achieveable in SUPER CAR TERITORY!!
Some questions, How much is the 350 gonna run you, i take it you do ALL tyhe work on your own and for that i ADMIRE YOU, but could you possibly gimme some tips on painting, as i am painting my skirts in a month or so and plan on doin outta the comfort of my own garage as well, i have all the tools, but i'm unsure about what to do with the dust so it doesn't get the skirt, also dunno how many coats i should put!
Secondly, dumb question, but how is there 2 calipers on that brake, i mean i know ones not ON the brake, but is it a camera trick?!
LOVIN the ride though, also, what kinda rims/tire setup you got?!
Thanks!

Did you paint the front bumper in you garage? looks good from the pics.

btw, I haven't gotten around to installing those sway-bars, I may PM you for some help.

-Yup, I do all my own work, the only time any of my cars go to a shop is for certification or emmisions.

-The engine is gonna run me about 10 grand

-To keep the dust down you have to sweep out the garage the DAY BEFORE you paint. 20 minutes before your ready to lay some colour spray down the walls and floor of your garage with a fine mist of water. Dont do this on a hot day though because the humidity from the evaporating water will give you a poor paintjob.

-I like to spray 4 light coats 2 medium coats and 1 heavy coat, make sure you let the paint dry about 10 mins between coats.Also, wetsand your kit with 600grit for good adhesion and make sure you clean it really well with laquer thinner.

-Nope, thats no camera trick. I was gonna machine a bracket to mount both calipers on the one rotor but I have since changed my mind. The willwoods are going on the rear (1 per rotor) and I'm gonna machine my own 8 piston front calipers.

-Rims, I don't know what there called but the tires are Dunlop Sport Fm 901's...

Dam you ask a lot of Q's LOL, hope this helps out..I'd be glad to help you out with the paint if you want a hand.

Later man...
