Are you sure it is a 76??? Looks like it has points.

Well it does have points and it was out of a 1974 toronado but I ran the numbers on the block and it checks out as 1976 , so it must have been swapped at some point .

2 things of note: Check your piston to bore clearance with the Speed Pro pistons- needs to be .003-.004 Bernard Mondello Performance in Corona, CA is the Mondello you want unless you like things shoved where the sun doesn't shine because that's what you'll get out of Paso Robles. I would also recommend Mark Remmel in FL (cutlassefi here) or BTR Performance in Rochester, NY for cam selection.

Thanks for the advice , it is Bernard mondello he’s figuring out my cam and head stuff . I have threads over on classic olds regarding this build , figured I come here for some of the GBody specific advice when It comes time to do the swap . I have heard of both the other guys you mentioned and they are well respected in the olds community as well
