    Okay so I have no numbers for the fuelie heads, i found the pistons are some Lylen 740-P .040 pistons which i can find very little about. The little i did find was that the compression would be more like 9.43/1 and I'm thinking over time my dad just forgot and may have exaggerated. This motor...

    The most effective way I've found to clean an intake is to scrub it with carb cleaner or the likes and then beg until a friend lets you use their sand blast cabinet minding the mating surfaces as it will occasionally take some material out. I also used high temp clear coat on mine so it would be...

    This is more of what I'm going for with my car. After paint an upcoming school project is going to be about showing improvement over time so I was thinking either 1. Affect on 1/4 mile times with the installation of a better camshaft 2. Affect on cornering g-forces with the installation of...

    On my car with the performer intake and the demon i dented my hood with my air cleaner stud until i got a drop base air cleaner. Hood clearance is tight on these 2nd gens. Im not a fan of most cowl hoods on them but it may look good on your car. I like this hood on them however the price is...

    I Just thought I'd throw this in there, still driving my car through body work which is taking forever. Should be in paint in the next month or two. That little 327 does pretty good but it needs a higher revving cam. I hope those headers work for you Ernie!

    Sorry about the late reply guys, I've been pretty busy with work. Camaro got a trans reseal and some accel shorty header plugs which solved the Cyl. 6 misfire, runs much better now, getting a new fuel pump and new carb and then the body work begins.

    So since my last posting i got the car running and driving but as i hit the apex of a corner pretty hard i felt something let go in the motor and it started spewing oil like crazy and the ring i had long suspected to be in bad condition had finally cracked and had started digging holes in my...
