    Thank you. My buddy came by. And said to order some new power valves. Spring kit, hei timing curve kit, some sort of plug for the carb and some holley kit and he said just wait till he dials it in..he said it will be like a new engine. The cars been running rich and im no test and tune guy. Hes been racing super late model for years and he knows how to set it up..its good to know guys like that. Ill let ya know how it goes..im pretty excited and scared at the same time..tty

    The paint was valspar base clear urethane. Thanks for the kind comments. just an update on the tuning. We put smaller power valve in, blocked the secondary, put in some lighter springs for the 4 barrels, Timed it more...All i can say is the throttle response is rediculous. Its so awesome. The car runs sooooo much better. The shifting is way better, i can feather the clutch so easy now. Its night and day. We are still putting in the distributer advance curve kit and timing it up bang on tonight or tommorrow...Man im definitely not the tune guy. I thought my car ran great...lol...Im gonna post a vid after we are all done..Thanks for checking my thread out. TTY

    Think about going with the Holley Sniper FI system. Switching to that myself. Did lots of research on the Chevelle forum and I am sold on it. I will have a Holley Avenger 670 for sale if you want it!:) (Not enough carb for your set up though)...
