I was most certainly there.

No traction and non posi are losing you a ton of ET.

Thanks for the replies.The traction thing I knew, but its the top end that seems a bit weak.already have progressive linkage and the carbs are tuned about right...timings around 15 ini and 39 total.think a single four be better?if so, which manifold would you guys recomend.

can we expect to see you again this year,tom? if so...your car too?(like to check it out!)

thanx

Definitely lose the AFBs and get a Holley 750 double pumper and a Edelbrock Air Gap RPM.

1250 cfms are a bit much for a mild 289, don't you think?

There's also .3 to pick up swapping the C6 for a C4.

The secret of success is sincerity. Once you can fake that, you got it made.
