I would trade my blown small block for a less powerful blown Ardun motor anyday!! Just think at one point the cross fire fuel injection in the 80's vettes was the top dog, 30 years later its not much more than a paper weight but the flatty was cool and still is cool in my opinion, though its true I would want mine to be able to do highway speeds as well.
    I suspect there are quite a few fellows who would trade their 400 hp small block Chevy for a 200 hp flathead.

    For the younguns out there, the Ardun was designed by Zora Arkus-Duntov, father of the Corvette. The first two letters of Arkus were linked with the first three letters of Duntov to come up with the Ardun nameplate. I believe the first application of the overhead valve conversion was to French garbage trucks. They were looking for more power from the motors to haul heavy loads and Zora stepped up to the plate.

    Put those on a Chevy, and the looky-loos will be asking, "Was that motor a kit?"

    Those poser valve covers would save me a lot of money. If I would have seen a set for sale before I tore my car apart 5 years ago, the car just might still be together with a set of these poser valve covers.

    Hey, it is great to see you posting again too Pete as it has been awhile I believe. Larry, welcome to the family here and I'm sure they would appreciate a few photo's of your Roadster pick up and the amazing workmanship you have done on it. Good to see you both here, Mark.
    I maybe a little crazy but it stops me going insane.
