Terry Langille's 1978 Gold T/A

My engine is a '69 428 .030 over short block (433) and crank with .011
under, chromed rod journals. GM 455 SD forged steel connecting rods. FM
stock type bearings with that extra thou off the crank to make a .002"
clearance as the GM performance engines were, sealed power forged
pistons (HO Racing FP-61), moly rings, entire rotating and reciprocating
assembly fully balanced. The heads are '78 (T/A 6.6) 6X milled .020, GM
HO springs, Comp Cams roller tip rockers, Nunzi Rev kit 7/16 studs, GM
Lifters, High lift HO copy Cam (PC#229-1130, 214/224 @.050), Nunzi
timing set,
GM Chrome valve covers, Chrome oil pan, Pontiac Metallic Blue paint,
Belden Wires, GM Rochester Quad Carb with HO Racing performance kit,
matched jetting (+fine tuning). Re-curved Distributor. SS bolts, GM
Manifolds and all finishing from '78 T/A 6.6 so it looks stock! Duals
all the way, no converter, and just GM original resonators and chrome
tips. I manufactured the motor mount adapter kit myself, since the one
from HO Racing did not fit properly!
