The 426 Hemi that comes with these MPC kits is pretty well detailed to start with (even has a few internal parts), however, I just can't seem to be able to build anything OOB or leave well enough alone....call it a character fault if you like. Anyway, on with the dog & pony show.
I scratch built a clutch can (hydraulic clutch) to replace the stock bell housing, modified the kit distributor to fatten up the sparker, fabricated a blower belt tensioner (the kit doesn't have one...shame on them), and fabricated a girdle for the bottom end. Added the lower injection lines (gonna have to replace these kit pices as they are pretty clunky looking).
The kit supplied plug wire may be fine for most folks but they are so heavy (thick) they hurt my face).
After all...we all know that plug wires aren't the same thickness as battery cables right?
Did some detailing, tweaking and more weathering...this ain't no trailer queen, I want it to look like it's been run a few times. Keep in mind these are large photos and the engine is only 1/16th. Making the wire looms, plug boots, etc. was really straining my tired old digits & orbs.
