My wife was onto me the 1st time she seen this picture at a swap meet.

Now she gets ‘I’m not going to lie to you, and I’m not telling either’ . Why pour gasoline into a fire if you want to put it out hehe.

I'm sure she probably knows what I have in it, I have craft fully named the spreadsheet "Malibu Parts". Honestly for what I have in it, I don't think it's that bad. I know around $4k has been credit card points and break the rest out of the 9 years..... well I need to get this done, that is too long.

*Edit

I have owned it 8 years, 9 months, and 10 days according to the picture I took when we picked it up. 9 year anniversary of a non-running car is Jan. 13 2022. That ain't happening, it WILL run and drive by then and I WILL complete the car by October 2022. I turn 50 and there is no better present than that.

Got out a couple box's I'd bought a while ago. Holley billet rails for the stock intake and SEP injectors(hope I don't regret these, probably will). Installed on the intake today. The Holley rails are a quality piece.

Parts, parts, parts. C7 Z06 fan and radiator showed up, I thin the fan will do just fine running PWM with the Holley. Not sure what to do with the radiator, I probably could have used it if I hadn't set everything up around the current radiator, if it will cool 750hp it would probably be good enough.

Aaaa, radiators are overrated until you hit the track :giggle:
What radiator do you have there? A couple of members here convinced to get a CC162, and it works great. I ran a stock replacement for a 305 for over a year. It worked exactly the same as CC162 EXCEPT for the last 1/8 mile at the track. The stock one would work for 1/8 mile hits, but the last 1/8....oofa..... always over 240 and an occasional 245.

What is the part number of the fuel rails you bought? I've been looking at the Holley rails and I have a tough time determining the correct part number, but those seem to be correct for the truck intake.

Using a Summit Brand dual pass radiator, it should be good for what I need. Built by Northern if I remember correctly

Holley rails are part # 534-244
