Fuel pump

I don't need it at the moment, but if a bigger engine should come along one day, I have this electric fuel pump waiting. The aerospace pump is good for engines up to 850 horsepower, so it should handle any hemi-project I might indulge upon.

Finishing touches

I finally got around to putting an antenna in the front fender of the 'Cuda. It's not a correct vintage mopar antenna but a cheapo piece from the local autoparts store. The cable is routed through the proper hole inside the fenderwell. Now the Cuda is practically finished with everything in working order - but this project still has miles to cover. The possibilities are sheer endless, from more power via a bigger engine or fuel injection, to a slick fivespeed manual overdrive transmission, better brakes, or further suspension upgrades. I'll see what my time and pocketbook permit in the course of the coming years. Goal will be to make the 'Cuda handle better, be quicker and more reliable than it was when new. Additional wheels will also certainly be in store...

An upgrade I was advised to invest in is this chrome ignition box. It is said to be superior to the ornage one I had installed, not being built in China, we'll see next season.
