1970 shovel nose hydro. Was previously a vdrive some time ago. Now has a 1966 396 BBC and a JC a-h squirter. Does around 62 or so now just want to make it a little faster maybe around 70-75mph would be good for me.

Things I already have to install:
Custom made set of zoomies
1.6 roller rockers
A little 522 lift cam with 107 lobe separation
Shoe for the intake
Edelbrock tarantula intake
2in carb spacer
Mallory unilite distributor


Oh yea. Because I spent all my money on parts I'm now on a budget for the rest........     Any ideas or input?

The header are ceramic coated.  The boat was due for a complete restore.  From 20 feet it looked good trying to get it to look good at 10 feet.

jimpen can spill the details if he would like but it's gonna be wicked when it's done. Definitely gonna encourage me to redo my anchor next year.

my shovel jet is a good 10 footer. I'm thinking about cutting the rail off and smoothing the edges all the way around
