that's looking awesome, and you keep talking Big block in a Jeep, here's the one I'm doing, it's a 468ci BBC in a 79 CJ7 and you ain't joking tight, other than there is a little extra room above it when running a carb, lol

Anyway, I got the intake done and it has the exact look I want. I now have more hood room and less toy like looks. I would love to show you some pictures right now but I now live in deep in the sticks and I have satellite internet which means SLOW and I can only upload bulk stuff after 1AM. So, as soon as the pictures hit my Photobucket account

I absolutely love it. I work 12 to 14 hours a day but since I am 150 feet from my house I no longer feel like I neglect my family. I leave my 5 acres once a week to pick up supplies and every other day or so to drive to the post office to ship. It is awesome, just what a hermit like me needed

SolidWorks, MasterCam, a Haas CNC mill, a manual Jet lathe, and a love for the hobby that will not seem to die

I agree, when I put it in place for the pictures I actually got that kinda tingle you get when you see something better then you expected.

You are welcome. The flat on top is for engraving on, I just have not decided what I want yet. It will be a fuel injection setup. As far as being famous, I feel pretty honored already that so many think my little toy in neat enough to post such nice comments
