Bullet's going to be a little more expensive than the others. However, they don't punch out a bunch of shelf grinds to fill orders from Summit and Jegs. Each one is custom and they're all ground on a CNC.

Accuracy will be spot-on.

Not yet. Got a little overwhelmed deciding on a cam, gonna push that to the back burner for now. I also want to stop by the machine shop before ordering anything as well....

Ive got several smaller jobs on the CJ I want to complete while its down anyway. Got a few of my gauges in....Auto-Meter Sport Comp Tach-OP-Volt and adding a clock. Tach is too big to fit in OE location, gonna have to get creative here as Im also planning to add a Tranny - Water temp and Fuel gauges (2 1/16) as well before all is done. Those will probably end up mounted in a bracket under the radio.

Also got my order in from: https://www.vtewarehouse.com/



Since I plan on re-doing, improving and streamlining some of the wiring it will be nice to have on hand. I used a few of their products on my K5 build...good stuff. Got some 0/1g wire enroute as well.....

Damn, I think you are reading my mind. I was just wondering where to buy quality bus bars, because I didn't want to scrounge around in a muddy junkyard for them.

It certainly looks like you are prepping for my kind of build. Keep it coming!

I hear ya and this is coming from a guy who's lost countless nights' sleep over two degrees

I concur with Matt: sweet score on the busses.

auto meter makes angle cups for the smaller gages you can have them made at a machine shop so the gages do not sit the whole way into the dash

I had trouble deciding on a cam to, but I am so glad I went with Lunati 64501 (could have gone with the 64502 for more top end) on my 401. Awesome flat torque curve. Made 370hp and 450tq with stock 8.5:1 compression, edelbrock performer intake, and 600cfm carb

Saw that...maybe at a later time, right now I just want to get them in. I was hoping to say close to OE with the tach-clock locations but thats not going to work. Brainstroming right now on how to get them all to fit and not look like they were an after thought.

Awesome numbers.

That's the same cam I suggested on post #50.

How's the idle?
