    So, since Stg 2 SE COULD fit without cutting hood, especially since intake and headers would be new in either case, it seems Stg 2 SE would be the way to go considering better flow, yes? If not, what am I missing?

    Yes, the only difference between Stage1SE and Stage2SE heads is the better flowing exhaust port of the Stage2 heads. They even cost very close to the same. If you are starting out from scratch and need to buy headers, Stage2SE is a No-brainer.

    Continuing on the EFI subject, an alternator upgrade will be needed. Any suggestions on best way to go with a new alternator? As always, thanks for the input/comments.

    Never used Powermaster, don't know. Maybe others can comment.

    I used a Powermaster 1 wire alternator and so far, 2400 trouble free miles.

    I have a powermaster on my Camaro (632 CID BBC + Optima Red) and it's been fantastic

    I modified my alternator bracket and run a CS140 (CS144?) alternator on my cars. Amperage for days.

    Thanks for the comments. 140 amp sufficient or should I consider higher? Running fans, EFI, 6AL-2, etc.

    Hello Shawn,
    Back on your EFI set-up, can I ask what fuel pump you used and, did you change the tank? If yes on the tank, which tank? Thanks.

    I did change the tank to a tanksinc unit made specifically to work with their in-tank pump. I'm using a 340lph pump.
