    Fia headlight covers

    Now that i have the buckets in, I have to figure out how to mount these things. Moroso makes some neat quick release retainers. Not to sure how I could make them work in the front though. I dont think the hinge will work because of the shape of the 73 front. Wingnuts would be easy but...

    Intake manifold modifications

    Anybody ever get involved with some serious modifications of their intake manifold. Like say putting some JB weld inside the intake and grinding it to shape because the ports down line up and fit your gasket perfectly? I have heard about people doing this, with say epoxy, but that seems kind...

    2007 Engine Masters - thoughts and analysis

    So looking over the entrants to the 2007 engine masters, these guys are getting ridiculous power out of a 300-500ci motor, with a stock displacement, stock dimension components, readily available aftermarket parts, a flat tappet camshaft, and a limit of 10.5:1 compression. All motors ran on 91...

    Failure to hump AFR leg

    One of the things that piss me off is AFR leghumpers. Nobody can go fast without AFR. I mean its like trying to argue the merits of islam in a mormon temple most places. (Pardon me, I am drinking the bottle of champagne that came in the mail today) So anyway, having seen more than a few...

    Something I have been stumbling on

    Apparently GM roller lifters are pretty much stock replacements for each other. GM has redesigned the lifter for the LS7 and you can pick em up uber cheap. like $121 bucks. According to a bunch of LT1 forums they are apparently the hot ticket for OE style roller lifters.
