Nice install by the way!

A man after my heart. When I've done one of these 'half-breeds', I've always lived by the philosophy of putting it in, with NO modifications that can't be removed easily, leaving NO evidence. NO cutting, NO welding, NO hole-drilling. So, the original engine can go back in, and no butchery will remain.
Just opinion, my way of doing it.

flathead fever makes a good point... there is a run in my area that has this rule. Although, the rule gets 'bent' a little, if you have a hood covering up the engine, sometimes, they will let the rule slide. (especially if you are buddies with the organizers.)
