I haven't weighed the balancer yet, but it feels lighter than the oe unit.

    The "budget" theme is kinda going out the window so I decided on a full chromoly UPR front suspension kit.

    I started tearing down the engine getting ready for ptv clearance check and transferring over the oil pan and front accessorys.
    That brings back memories of my T'loader swap. Get the sawsall ready. lol

    You dug into the wiring yet? I'd suggest getting a Helm manual for the donor car, and your 82, can usually find them on ebay.

    I'm going to keep it carbureted and just eliminate the non essential wiring. I'll look into one of those manuals. Thank you.

    haha, I'm pretty indecisive myself so I can't say much. You're the guy I got those 10 holes from a few weeks back (at the storage shed?)

    Lol, yeah, I guess I need to update this thread a little bit. So now the plans are back to EFI, but this time I bought a Holley Terminator X setup, Vortech S-trim, and a Tremec TKO 600. I'm actually working on it right now believe it or not. It's not much farther than the last pictures, but I'll update the progress in a few days. But like STL79 says, check back next week for a different direction. Oh, it'll probably be a stock HO cam for now?
