    After seeing this I went to ebay to see what can you buy in 10k dollars range. I’ve found 1933 Ford pickup with 355 small block Chevy for 9800. So for that kinda money there are definetely better ways to spend 10k.

    It kind of annoys me when people do Gen3/Gen4 swaps with the Vortech intake manifold and alternator placement, and then proceed to cut a hole in the hood to make it work. There are much more compact options available which offer TONS of hood clearance.

    • Chris-
      I’m thinking the term ‘Make it work”- was sort of taken loosely with this build…I mean they didn’t waste anytime modding the fenders for the tires to fit!!!
