Mullet El Camino Build Episode 3! Installing the Engine, but Issues Arise!!

We drop the Texas Speed 427 down into Cleetus McFarland's El Camino nicknamed "Mullet", but are we done with the engine mounting? As usual, we talk about a few tricks of the trade and our thought process on building a high performance drag racing car.

    Kevin my brother you are absolutely killing it with this build. You sir are a definite asset to cleetus I really believe that he has the potential to go sixes now that you are on the team. I do know this if I ever needed a car built I would drive the whopping 50 miles from my house to your shop lol love what you doing brother keep the videos rolling.

    I know Kevin is just going to move the engine because that is just the type of guy he is; BUT, is there any reason why that hood couldn’t be modified to accommodate the engine where it is? Like cut out the area that is touching and fiberglass in a new cowl? OR have StreetBanditos make a carbon fiber hood real quick? Would be a good colab.

    You can keep the notifications, but I am subscribed and will surely watch the videos as they show up on my subscriptions. Thumbs up also. The detailed video on what makes machines what they are is what I love and it is something easily left out by other youtubers and especially tv shows (I hate TV now because it is all about advertising and drama, without the details). Cletus has some detailed build videos but not as much as he used to, and Alex Taylor just had one of her dad sand casting an aluminum part. People like your channel because you are down to Earth with no drama and you do a great job presenting what you do. It isn't for everyone, but there are more of us who appreciate that, than you may have expected.

    Why not just get another hood/modify the scoop until the intake clears? That way you keep the weight at the front, preventing wheelies and save a lot of time. A fiber-hood cant be as expensive as the work hours to move the engine back either, or am I wrong?
