    Hi Steve,

    I have your build saved and found that you've built your Mk IV much like I'm going to build mine. Enjoyed the thread...

    I have a question on your engine choice. I have been planning on the X-head 427 crate, and see you chose the higher hp Z-head.

    If you had to do it again, would you still have chosen the same engine? Is it too over powered? Do you think the X-head would be more streetable? I realize it's 50-75 more hp and the torque is about the same, its just that I've heard 450hp is about the most you can really use in a streetable FF Roadster. I guess with the Z-heads, the custom exhaust headers are required, too.

    Anyways, thanks for taking me along in your build. That's a beautiful machine. I hope to be starting mine in less than a year...

    Boyd, Glen Burnie, MD
