For an ignition system, we went with MSD’s Street Fire billet HEI distributor (PN 8362, $132.95) and matching plug wires. Since the wires were only $40, it meant our entire ignition system came in under $200. Topping off our Weiand intake is Holley’s new 650 HP street-version carb. To keep things running cool, and knock off some weight, we also sourced Weiand for one of their aluminum water pumps. Since we started this build with a bare block, we didn’t have any fasteners, so we picked up an accessory bolt kit from ARP (PN 534-9801, $93.95). Other parts used in the build came from Summit and include the water neck (PN SUM-371100, $19.95), freeze plug set (PN SUM-G1581, 13.95), distributor clamp (PN SUM-400500, $4.95) and these sweet, chromed valve covers (PN HLY-241-80, $56.95).
