So they already have them mocked up? Or did you have to send them any dimensions? Just wondering how involved you had to be in ordering these for a Pontiac. I want to get a set for my round ports... it would be awesome if its really that easy!!!

Good find!

SPEED SAFE, NICK

I’ve had to give him dimensions. He’s going to send me a set for test fit. I’m getting his first set for a firebird. He’s also making some for a GTO for test fit for another customer.

I wonder how close those would be to a first gen bird... Most the accessories mounted to the engine are in the same position... I wonder how different they would be...

Holy crap those look good. Possible power steering interference. I went with a manual box(saved weight). Love to see a review of these. Please keep us posted.

Youíre one of the reasons I ordered the log style Charlie. When you said they made as much power and spooled quicker. They cleaned up the welds inside too.
