I may have missed it, but do you have someone lined up to tune it who is familiar with the Holley FI setup?

Doug's full length headers into 2.5" exhaust, thru Gibson mwa mufflers, if you could call them that. 904 trans with 1st gear planetary replaced with shorter ratio, 3.98 in first gear. 2200 stall built by pro trans. 18" wheels, nitto 555 g2 18/35/265 front and rear, can and will put bigger rubber in the back a couple weeks after getting it on the road. It's gone have a problem with traction and the asshole on the go fast peddle.

It's not too late to build a four link rear end setup that the Motown Missile used.
I think I have the tab and linkage patterns from Carrol Shelby's Speed secrets in an old Direct Connection book.
I'd have to do some digging.
