      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    Thanks all! Yeah I have a '77 Dodge D100 with a slant six and I love that beastly engine! Also, the chassis will stay Volare, but I plan on doing a lot of modifying to it to make it a bit more "up-to-date" including coilovers, 4-link rear, and adding my own fron suspension components. Will take a while, but hoping the results will be worth it!

    Okay, change of plans. I am not happy with anything I have come up with for the 340, so I'm doing a boosted 225 slant six! I have already started to scratch-make an Aussiespeed "Hurricane" intake manifold for it out of styrene sheeting. So far so good! I justdont know how in the hell I am going to cut out the runners...scribing with a hobby knife just feels kinda sloppy to me...
    Btw, this build will be on and off (dont have as much time as I once did), so bear with me...

    Lindberg 225 slant six and manual/automatic trans
    In search of a complete 225 slant six engine and manual/automatic transmissions from Lindberg '64 Plymouth Belvedere/Dodge 330 kits. I believe the Dodge had an auto and the Plymouth had an A833 4spd. If you have any of these parts, i'd love to take them off your hands! I have a few things to trade as well if need be.

    Resin 1961 Plymouth Belvedere...anyone make one?
    I have a friend who built a bad-ass 1961 Plymouth Belvedere and now it has been featured in many magazines and online. I was wondering if anyone makes a resin model of that year car?

    Ah, excellent news! The 340 from the Duster kit is one of the best engines Ive ever seen...so detailed and precise! It needs to have an aftermarket parts following, dangit!

    Ok, this looks pretty gnarly...this gives me some ideas for future builds!
  9. brodie_83 added a post in a topic Pro-touring Plymouth Volare *340 to boosted 225 slant!*   

    Thanks! The intake is from an AMT 1970 Chevelle SS from the optional parts. I might just try to modify it to fit...it looks great on the 340! 
    I'll have to look into those valve covers from the street machine kit...or maybe just make my own.

    Sweet, thanks Casey! Appreciated! I'll also have to look at your eBay store too...cast anything new within the past few years? Lol

    If you want it, id be willing to trade something or it. It is missing the engine. I got it like that.

    Pro-touring Plymouth Volare *340 to boosted 225 slant!*
    Hey all, another winter has come around and I'm bored as heck not being able to work on my REAL vehicle, so I decided to start on this Volare kit I picked up at a Mopar car show $40...unknowing that they re-released it soon after
     
    Anyway, my plans for this thing is to build up the 340 from an AMT '71 Duster with an aftermarket intake manifold, an EFI setup and possibly turbocharged. Then I'll have to figure out suspension (since there literally isn't any) and lower it, bigger wheels/tires, a few body mods to clean up the front of the car (I prefer the earlier front ends, but I'll make due). Should be a fun project!
     
    So far I have asembled the 340 engine, but am in search of a  different intake manifold that will work with this engine before I can go any further on this part. If anyone knows of something that may work, please let me know. Not a whole lot of stuff for the small block Mopar world. I found that the fuel injected hi-rise manifold from an AMT '70 Chevelle SS was close, but the sides are a bit too tall for the 340 heads. Looks cool as hell though!
     




    Also have to find some aftermarket valve covers that will work with this engine as well...the stockers are pretty lame.

    I have a Revell Civic kit as well (I think it's the earlier Civic to be honest) and have been contemplating what I want to do with it...
    Yours looks fantastic so far! Keep it up!

    Headers and intake manifold/carb assembly from Petty Dart/Cushman Duster kits
    Looking for headers and an intake manifold that might work on my '71 340 Duster engine and this is the only other one I can come up with that might work, so if you have a spare or one you don't want to use (they're kind of a dumb part with the carb molded into it anyway), then I'd gladly take it off your hands. Thanks folks!
