Sounds good Kent. Clarkson showed what you can get up to in his 5.2 RPI
built SD1 some years ago. It was running estimated 360-380 bhp and
around 370-380 ftlb and revving out to 6,200 on hydraulic lifters.  Just
have a peak at this video .... Make way for the faster pastor ...

Dave has a sense of humor, too.

I am nearing completion of a long term project (insanity?)
 5.1 litre/ST400 (dual stall converter) in SD1.  Have eliminated all
problems ahead of firewall...iron block and heads, no A/C, 600cfm Carter
carb, HEI dizzy, Corvette radiator,four pot calipers, vented discs and
MANUAL rack. 
 I will need the forearms of a gorilla to steer it, but all the roads in
west Texas are straight, right?

Does anyone have a decent set of SD1 carpet?
