It's got a bit of all three Chevy, Dodge and Ford in it! Good idea...good luck with it!
yes it should first gen hemis are not much bigger than a sbc an for headers your right on fenderwell exit is going to be the route ill be taking. as far as chevy, mopar an ford parts yea im going there too, when ever my pockets give me the go ahead I'd love to get a 4 link 9 inch.
