Could be a fun reasonably priced toy to play with if it was done right wink

Yeah, I gotta say I like the concept; hope the execution is well done.

Should run pretty nice as it weighs less than todays trucks those 5.7 engines are normally found in.

I'd like to have it, but our emissions laws here frown on engine swaps and stuff newer than 1981. They may not say anything if it passes, or they could say you've removed all the oem equipment and revoke your registration until you put it all back. Years ago I had a guy refuse to test my daily driver pickup as it didn't have full length pipes to the rear bumper. Some of these guys can be over the top about anything they see that is not stock.

SO, register it up here in Bonner County - nobody cares about that stuff up here in the woods.

Downside to that though is the occasional idiot "rolling coal".

This ad surprised me a little. In today's market, its worth the price. Look at the sum of the parts gents. Pictures don't tell everything, but this looks like a winner.

Before I left Ca. in 94 the MANDATORY fines and jail time associated with testing a vehicle with ANY mod's to the emissions system were enough to make any licensed tech a bit paranoid and justifiably so wink beer

There are guys here in Boise with S-10 v8 swaps and 5.0 Mustangs that now have carbureted stroker engines etc. that are definitely not emissions legal. What they do is register the vehicle to a PO box in one of the small farming towns an hour or more away from here that don't do emissions testing.

hopefully they don't implement roadside spot checks or stink up the interior of the wrong car following them with the windows up and fresh air ducts open wink whistling beer

Hey Neil -
Where do they do emissions testing down there ? Ada County, I would guess ? Any others ?
I'm kinda liking the area near Firebird, maybe Meridian.
My stuff '89 and newer are legal - the Road Runners are '68 & '69 - but I don't want the hassle.
I'd probably find myself doing another pre-'72 street/drag car though...maybe with a Gen 3.

Ada and Canyon County, which is Boise all the way over to Nampa and Caldwell. Everything 1981 and newer.

I think they now test diesels too as we have a bunch of rolling coal rednecks here.

I think they used to test old cars once people registered them for use the first time, but I don't think they do that anymore. No tests at all with classic plates, but you can't use those for driving around and going to work with. Weekends and limited use only.

Anybody who has the ability to do that build should be able to figure out:

1. Human eyes are side-by-side and we see things better in a wider view.
2. Cell phone cameras can be rotated to shoot photos in "landscape" view instead of "portrait".
3. Said cell phone can be used to transfer said photos to another computer or a website by other methods than a screenshot that's 2/3 black.

I'd really like to see the details of this build, but with the #&&%$@!@% pictures provided i can't...
