The Wave Hunter

The project I'm fixing to get back on, will start with the engine. It will be built for getting to remote spots on the beach.
The engine has a not-to-old rebuild on it, so I'm not going into the short block. Money is a factor too.

The rundown of "The Wave Hunter"
1981 Wagoneer w/360/727/208/3.31 gears, and 33" BFGs

'79 Exhaust Manifolds (they look a little like shorty headers - to get rid of that log style manifold on the drivers side)
Stock Exhaust for now
Valve Job with a 3 Angle Valve Grind
Summit K8600 cam & lifters
Trick Flow Inner & Outer Valve Springs
New Comp Pushrods and oem Rockers
Edelbrock Performer Manifold
Gasket Matching and a light porting on both manifolds
Modded Holley Carb
* will swap back and forth with a QuadraJet - depending on which I can get tuned for the best mileage AND the best punch *
Electric Fuel Pump with Fuel Injector Hose (pvc/teflon liner to prevent inner hose deterioration from clogging carb passages) eventually
