Drove 6 1/2 hours out to Indy area to pick up my new car.  If I had gone and looked at the car I probably not have bought it. Really rough. BUT I did want a project and I got one now. Lol here are some pics. I bought a blower,a mag manifold and a 4 stack Hilborn injection

It rains almost the whole trip out and on the way back home it poured from WV til I got home at 11:30pm.

What kind of HP levels are you going to be with the blown 331? Are you building this as a drag race only car not street? I know my buddy with his SS/P 55 Chev 265ci uses the Mccleod soft hit clutch ( http://www.mcleodracing.com/index.php/racing-parts/soft-lok.html )and a Jerico transmission. He has set the record for his class 11.60 ET

No idea on HP as of now. It will be street driven and will take to the track once in awhile..  I just need to know if the small block Chrysler bell housing will work.  They have the same bolt patern.

The small block bell will bolt up, but the crank flange on the hemi extends further from the engine block, so you need to make a spacer to put between the block and bell.
