ritrebor, I think you might need more power....that setup looks kind of weak.  NOT!  

 

Super clean and outrageous-looking.  Thx for sharing.  :-)

Changed from the Carb'd-draw-thru-turbo that was originally a Scarab Stage III engine to a Blow-thru-EFI'd-turbo with Alky Injection. Much more drivable. Could never get the Scarab setup to run right.

Yes. I'm too lazy/inept to include definitive links here, but I have a 454 with a few bits to improve it, a Doug Nash 5-speed and some chassis mods to accommodate the setup. Several others have big block Chevy engines with stock firewall/frame rails. About 15 years ago we had on this Forum a couple of really impressive bbc Datsun drag cars... full tube chassis, back-halved.

With the ubiquity of the Gen-IV small block, the old-school big block has understandably become a rarity.
