I thought you all might enjoy seeing some of the recent upgrades that I've done. The new brakes are amazing! And the exhaust is on another level. I couldn't be happier. Here's a video!

Yeah, you're probably right, but I'm still really glad I went with the brakes that I did.

On the engine, I rebuilt it about 7 years ago, bored .30 over, machined the heads, new internals (pistons, rings, etc) including a slightly more aggressive than stock Clay Smith Cam. On the top end I've got a Weiand Warrior aluminum manifold and a Holley 4 barrel carb.

@Ponyboy They are! Good eye.

I actually went with their full front + back brake kit, (SoT - STBPACKAGE4). I also picked up a new set of disc spindles and the Wilwood Master Cylinder kit from Shaun at SoT as well.

Great video! I love the new sound. Thanks for sharing also the dyno results. Which carb are you running (size)? Have you done anything on the heads and exhaust manifold?

@Mustang4SF - I'm running a Holley 650 Double Pumper. The heads were machined when I had them off, and I've got Dougs Tri-Y Headers for the exhaust.

@2nd 66 - I can't seem to find the cam specs. I did the project in 2013 and I have all those details in a file that I have currently misplaced. I do remember calling their phone line, speaking with a knowledgable person and telling him all the details of my build, and that I wanted a hotter cam that still had really good street manners. I'll let you know the exact details when I track down the missing folder with receipts.
