Finally making headway. Just dropped off the completed engine to get it installed. We gt ad to go .60 on the bore. It now has comp cam roller cam. Howard’s roller bar lifters. Edelbroc performer rpm heads. Topped with 1.73 roller rockers. Using the existing edelbroc torker intake, but adding fitech efi kit. The list is long on the other stuff that needs to be done. Brakes and brake lines. Complete cooling system. Electrical and a/c. But there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Panteras are badass. I’m glad you saved it. Paint it a cool color like a dark purple or something like that and get some Monza exhaust tips lol.

That will be a nice hp upgrade from previous. I was wondering what happened to the car but you are still at it. That’s great to see

Love me a Pantera. I had a former co-worker who had one about 20 years ago. It was black, 408 stroker and had a pro charger on it. Very mean car.

Good luck with your build. Take your time, do it right, don’t cut corners and be patient. It will pay off. Can’t wait to see the finished results.
