It visually lessens the gap between the top of the headlight and the hood.

What did you need to do to get the SS running?

I dunno...? Haven't figured it out yet. It IS running. Just not running right. I'm halfway through getting the headers off to do plugs and wires... Now I'm not convinced the valves don't need to be relashed... BUT... It's the end of the season, so I think I'm just going to yank the motor altogether and do it all on a stand. I was gonna pull it to replace the oil pump anyways... Smile

No. I was convinced to run the insane Melling 77HV Big Block pump, and the oil pressure is RIDICULOUSLY high. So I bought a normal Melling 55HV to install...

Thanks though!
