I'm kinda trying to decide on either the Comp 268 and a MTA-1 (AMC-360 TH400)
Intake gaskets need attention, so I'd be half way there anyway..
Motor is installed in front of an auto trans (stock TH400 with a mild shift kit and stock converter)
Stock 3.55's (i think... Might be 3.73, whatever came stock in a 79 Cherokee Chief with a 360).
Tires are 285/75-16 (about 32.5" tall)
Running a GM DIY Throttle body injection with computer controlled timing.
Runs pretty well, idle is pretty smooth. I have about 5 miles on the motor so far and am still tuning the EFI. My build thread (link in my signature has more details).
