I was looking at a set of 4 of those earlier today im thinking those on the rear for reverse and work lights 3 20 inch light bars on the bumper should be plenty

 

I do like that day lighters are period correct but for the cost i can get a few light bars and have more light

I've had great experiences with Demon carbs, it's all Holley style components, but has a modern and sleek look.

Edelbrock is great for ease of tune. Holley and Demon give more versatility to dial in a perfect tune but require more work and knowledge to get it there so it's more common that people have engines that don't run right on them.

Edelbrock, less seems to go wrong, I've had to rebuild too many Holley carbs that were just rebuilt.....Damn power valve...

Hands down......... but select the right demon that matches your components.

The top end kit calls for 600-650 cfm the demon at 625 is right in the middle of that range i need a carb that will fire as quickly as possible so i can break in the cam

There is always the good ol quadrajet, but you have to find one of the 15 people that knows how to tune them right.

after pricing out parts and machine work o was looking at another 2400 for a rebuild i decided to check summit again and found a short block that used the exact parts i wanted for 1300 so an order was placed and the old block wrapped up for a later build while i waited on the new short block to show up i bed lined the engine bay and made a harness for my extra lights
