Well after 10 years? i pulled my carbs off for a rebuild. I just could not get the car to run with out spraying fuel. Ordered rebuild kits from e bay. I wanted to get them from CB performance but they wanted 18$ to ship. No thanks.

Drove my 2276 yesterday, while my son watched&listened he's more up on turbocharging then I :oops:
once in a while I heard a bang :shock: just when I shift to 4th,, it's was the wastegate :lol: slicks on a sandy/dirt road is fun :shock: :lol:
still have stock trans :oops: stage I and a sprung center 4 puck :wink:
this sunday drags at Boyne City will be the 2nd time I've run it on pavement 18lbs in the slicks will help save the trans i hope
I'll just have some V8's 8) yes, my lil' crew chief will be helping, not quite 2yrs old and his 2nd drag event :D ,, I'll post the results next Monday :wink: Thanks for all the help guys!!!!

Drag racing will allow you to get away with a smaller sump -- the bigger sump is needed for cruising for temp control and road racing to keep some oil around the pickup

Tip:app. for Deep sump,, for a pick-up tube extension I use a old aluminum empi adjustable/spring loaded tube(junk anyhow) cut to fit
they are perfect for this 8) 8) 8) 8) seal/attach with JB weld,no more running to the hardware for conduit that don't fit right :lol:
hope this help someone? ,I've spent hours looking for the right size tubing before :roll:
