Pretty little thing aint it? Got to wonder why I am taking apart a good running car though :loco:

Need to work out a plan for the tank, probably going to sump a new tank, and I think I am going to do a 3G alternator upgrade at the same time.

Now that should be a blast!
I'll be interested to follow your progress, I've got a 390 that will be receiving a similar build next year.
I saw a very nice sump kit from Aeromotive that could work very nicely for your application.
What are your plans for tuning the ECU? Get a chip burned? or try a DIY tuner?
BTW: beautiful car! :thumbsup:

Thanks!

The computer is already setup for the application, but I plan to get a Tweecer or equiv if the dyno shows any goofy behavior.

Have you checked for hood clearance? When I talked to Mass-Flo last year they said the Victor intake wouldn't clear my 68's hood, or does the 69 - 70 body have more clearance?

Well I haven't physically checked,but I have an ace in the hole, a big Boss 429 scoop on my car :)

I don't know if the 69/70 has more room, but the Victor "should" fit on a 70 without a scoop, assuming a drop base.

Here is why, the carb pad is approx 5.5 inches above the block on an RPM. The Victor is 6.5

However, I ran a 1 inch spacer on my RPM with the stock hood and a carb with a drop base air cleaner, it was tight but it fit.

The EFI doesn't need the spacer, so the intakes should be a wash AND the throttle body is an inch shorter than a Holley carb

So, sorry I don't know the room on a 67/68 but on a 70 I'd say it fits, and in my case, I can even run a 4 inch air cleaner on top now, due to the scoop.

I've heard very good things about the Mass-flo kit. From your pic, looks like they are now shipping MSD dizzy's instead of Mallory.

Good luck with install, as advertised, should be relatively headache free.

Great. Your measurments sound very close to what I was thinking, being that the difference in intake height should be made up with in the lower throttle body height. I am "impatiently" waiting for you to install this and report back on fitment, as well as how it actually performs.
