Adam,

Looks like you've got WAY to much aluminum on that engine! Hopefully you won't need that third rear end after you fire that engine up. Looking great!

Thanks Rick, Got to lighten the engine up somehow haha. I linking to a YouTube video of this engine/car when I broke it in back on April 14th. It is not really loud, it only has two Rush stainless oval mufflers (MagnaFlow knock offs)
Watch "CorV8 running." on YouTube
