Its a 318, but with 165,000 mi. I had cracked pistons, so had it bored 30 over, 10 under on the crank so its now a 330. Also new bearings all round including cam, new Lunati racing cam and lifters, roller rockers, Weiland-Stealth intake, and 650 cfm Holly 4bbl, oil pump, and Headman headers. Should be turning out about 400 Hp. I'm still using the original Spark Control Computer, But this may go. I have historic plates on it so it will never have to go through an emission test again. Gone are the EGR, air pump, and cats. The break in went well, and it sound nice, and responds nicely to the pedal. I haven't had it on the road yet, maybe this weekend. So I don't know how it will respond with a load.

If you look close you can see the old 2bbl carb hooked up to the
computer just to keep it happy,

Ok, I took it our on my neighbors driveway (2000Ft). Low end it did great, when it hit 3rd gear it sounded like it was running out of gas. I have a new stock pump (mechanical) so that may be the problem. Not sure right now. Thinking about changing the ignition system over to this:

Its not listed as fitting a Dodge, but I'm sure it would.

Chrysler-Dodge-Plymouth. All the same.

That will fit.

You may need to increase the size of your fuel lines from 5/16 to 3/8 to get enough fuel to the carb. Remember...even 426 Hemi's with dual 4bbl. carbs had a mechanical fuel pump.

The new distributor and ignition unit arrived today. Got it all installed, and fired it up, son-in-law came out of the house and said kill it, Kayla (granddaughter)just went down for a nap. Ok! will test it out tomorrow. Anybody need a (SCC) Spark control computer. Here all the stuff I removed.
