And so it begins... 

Dyno’d at 440 hp 450 tq this 383 stroker blueprint engine arrived on Friday. The Ghost will be getting its 305 replaced when the new 200r4 from monster shows up (replacing the current 200r4) in a few weeks. Built custom to hold up to the motor.

It is truly more than street rod building it’s building more memories with dad ( like with the 51 when I was a kid) and now with my sons and some new and old friends.

It’s gonna be a awesome time. Can’t wait. The motor is a real beauty.
