I'll have to give that a shot. That Mothers stuff works pretty good. I made a redneck polishing wheel out of some viva paper towels and a 1/2" wooden dowel to do the rocker covers, worked pretty slick on the Milwaukee drill.

The OPs build is a spin off of a bolt on, out of the box build for the shade tree DIY guy developed buy a real smart guy named "Hippo" about 15 years back. SE Performance heads, SE flat top pistons, 570G cams and .030" Cometics. Unbox the parts, slap it together and the combination would make 95/105 numbers consistently and "pulled like an electric motor" according to Hippo.

Hippo was a well respected member of HTT years back and is no longer with us. I never met him but he always took the time to reply to PMs and share his knowledge with others. RIP Hippo, you have been missed!

Should be fun.

You got it dude! It's funny, I read about the Hippo build after piecing all the parts together this winter. I was trying to put together a budget 95" build, that would lay down 100/100ish numbers. After reading about the results of Hippo builds I'm hoping my spin off should do about the same. With some wishful thinking, maybe even better. Gonna try to get this thing out on the road for the first ride next Wednesday, can't fricken wait! Temps might break 50 degrees lol.
