    Mine doesn't look pretty but it runs like a box of mad frogs. It is from an 81 vette and has a RV cam,the original vette aluminum intake and carb,headers,and hi flow water pump. I don't know how to put a pic in the message so you will have to look at the attachment sorry

    406 SB with IROC Tuned Port Injection (IROC heads), roller rockers, RV cam, PLENTY of power for now........started hearing a rod knock recently (damn it!), so not sure where I will end up.......BUT keeping the TPI fersure, that is a major improvement over Q-jets.

    Currently I don't have a hood on, but the motor is a 454 (in background) and this will sit on top when it is finished getting electrolized.

    Re: what\'s under the hood ?

    Took me forever to find this old post, but I finally got a pic of my engine developed. Here it is:
    GM Crate 350, Edelbrock performer intake, that's a summit air filter, Rochester quad underneath that, FlowTech Afterburners are attatched to the heads. And pretty much everything underneath my hood is brand new or rebuilt. Except for the Master brake cylinder.

    That's a sweet looking engine Shawn!

    No need for a pic out of mine. Just look in your favorite Chiltons or Haynes manual at the stock 1988 210HP - 350TBI.

    Have no pics, but it is just a stock TBI 350 w/ 160,000 miles on it. Runs like a champ though.

    Re: what\'s under the hood ?

    I'm sure everyone knows what my stock 305 TBI looks like...105,000 mi. and runs great, if a little...okay, a lot...underpowered. Wish list:
    Edelbrock performer intake, Thorley headers, MSD ignition (used to want a Jacobs, but after the trail of dissatisfaction I saw here...NOT!), and possibly an Edelbrock performer cam.
