What adapter plates are you using? I'm assuming the clamshells are just stock g body V8 pieces?

Basically the setup I wanna do lol.

What are you doing for headers?
Thanks

Landon,
Just curious, why you didn't stick with EFI? Just didn't want the hassle?

Very nice, BTW!!

Yah I wanted something simple, car should sound really nasty I'll post a vid up in a few weeks hopefully...Thanks :D

Wanted everyone to know that this oil pan works with no mods, no one knew nowyou know!! You need these plates to make it work though, I had a another syle of plate and it hit the crossmember so use the trans-dapt with this combo....
