i believe it was the street hustler but i picked a different (bigger) cam.
if you need a motor built contact carsbycarl.
he a very easy person to deal with and always keeps you updated during the entire build.

Sounds great Mike!

Here are a few details on the build. I'll leave the finer points out for Mike to tell if he wants.

The base for the build was my 460 Street Hustler package, but with the following changes:

-Intake and valve cover delete (Mike installed his own).
-Bigger cam requested by Mike, that obviously sacrificed some idle quality but provides substantial top end gains.
-Bigger valves and more extensive porting than the base package.
-Notched pistons to clear the bigger valves and bigger cam.
