Here is what we originally started with: A 300hp GM crate engine that went from the crate right into the car. The Edelbrock manifold had to be machined a little bit on the top edge of the runners so it fit cleanly under the valve cover mounting pad on the late-model heads. Luckily the Victor Jr. is a "race" manifold and has added material for extensive port work. Also seen here are the Granatelli sheetmetal valve covers and Edelbrock long-style aluminum water pump. The perimeter-mount covers were mounted to the center-bolt heads with a set of adapter plates from GM Performance Parts.
