Well the local track here shut down 1st week Oct. I just got it running with new engine 2nd week Sept. I had some drivability issues(vacuum leak, bad tps) that took some time to solve. I also put a 75mm tb on it. Can't go any bigger with this Systemax. Actually the thing runs like crap on a cold start up. Once I get about 140-160 water temp she runs pretty smooth.
I used the info from Jay's cam card, & a vacuum gauge. I set the idle vacuum @ 14". Seems to work,in rpms it will range from 900- 1200. I'm sure thats not the correct way, but the thing drives great & runs hard. I'm sure there's more tuning left in it.
As far as suspension,pretty much stock. I do have some weld on BBK subframe connectors from the mid- 90's. I'm currently running 4.30's with a eaton 31 spline posi. Funny thing is, the car actually was as quick running 3.73's. Was able to 60' in the 1.7's, 1/8 mi as fast as 7.9 with newer 26/8.5 ET Drags. I think combined with the 3.35 1st gear, more wear on slicks, the 4.30's just are'nt optimal for my stock suspension.
I thought at the time, more gear accelerate quicker?
