Those dust catchers would look great on my VOAB.  Don't forget the linkage. . .
 
Wow  What do you figure you have coming out of that motor?  450?  475??  Or is there somethig fancy going on under them???  If I recall, that motor had 405 HP stock with those manifolds. 
 
Long rams too.  Oh Yeah. . .

Well, I *had* a brandnew solid Ultradyne cam in this 496" engine with 235@.050 duration and .582" lift, but I took it out again last weekend in favor of a hydraulic cam with something around .465" valvelift, so I won't have to install a higher stall convertor in the car aswell.

At the moment I just want to get the car running and get some DMV-tags on it so I can enjoy it.
It's been a long time already since I had the pleasure to drive in a 'new' car.

I think this engine will probably develop something like 425-450 hp. But I'm not sure how well the longrams work with the current cam ofcourse.
I do think torque will be tremendous because of the ram-intake AND the fact that it is a stroker.

Good thing you mention that. I also really like to have these 'moments' on tape.
A friend of mine has a camcorder who I'll need to confiscate for the job

Today I've been working on the engine. Trying to fit regular valvecovers under the intakes and 'over' rocker-arms. Maybe I'll have to use 2 gaskets per covers for added clearance.
If things work out I might be able to drop the engine in the car this weekend.

Engine is in.
But the longrams don't quite fit properly on the pass.side yet. Got over 2 inch of room on the driversside, and none on the pass.side.
So I will need to find a way to either shift the engine about an inch to the left.

The manifolds are the same size.
Either an original longram-car has slightly different inner-fenders or their engine is more centered in the car and placed 1 inch to the left.

The engine-mounts on these pre-64 models are pretty simple.
I think I can either elongate the large hole on the bottom piece of the mount, or just drill another hole next to it.

Those mounts do look pretty simple. I have no idea what the holes in
the crossmember look like but if I had to get Maybe with proper
measuring and lining everything up right drilling another hole in the
mount might do the trick, let me know how it works out.

The crossmember just has two flat-pedestals with threaded holes in their center where a large bolt goes in.

My main concern is 'why' the intakes don't line up properly.
Either original longram-cars have the mounts in different locations, or the fenders are slightly different on those cars. I hope to find out from a friend of mine in NewYork if he knows the reason.

I'm going to relate the placing of those mounts on the cross memeber to
being similar to a fusey only because that the only mounts I've done.
It may be very possible that the fenders where different, with the
menal picture I have in my head I dont remember the wheels wells in the
sonoramic cars being as big which enabled the proper room, but alas I
could always be wrong.

           Whenever
your friend gets back to you let me know. You never know when stuff
like that will come in handy.

I think I've found out that original LongRam-cars had different inner fenders. Most pics I've seen of real Longram-cars have some sort of removable panel in the inner fender.
Sounds like I'm in for some hacking in my fresh green paintjob...
