Good question. The mechanical may give you a little more flexibility to get a guaranteed fuel dump on demand.

The shutter could be a whole lot of things.

We need to get together some time. The First Coast Car Council puts on some pretty good Saturday night shows in different locations around Jacksonville every week. They were at Mike Shad Auto Nation last Saturday, and will be up in Fernandina Beach this Saturday. Are you going to Octobervette in Kissimme this weekend?

Okay, now I am full of questions. I am looking forward to seeing that car.

easy sport. the car is a work in progress(ie:it needs alot of work)
but I still have fun with it.My work takes me on the road often and so I get little time to do the thing I want.What is going on in Kissimmee?

I have been working 6/12 for the last couple of weeks but am now on 10's.maybe we can get together this saturday night?

We have been on and off planning for the OctoberVette show in Kissimmee this weekend. It will be in the Olde Town area just South of Disney (about 3 hours from Jax).

I will just send you a direct e-mail.

Make sure you have enough air getting to the carb. Take off the air cleaner as a test and see if the problem goes away. I had a similar problem and going to a 4" K&N with the filter top solved it.

tried running it without the breather assembly with no change.I
plan to change to a larger fuel pump and a 700/750cfm carb.

My cam is rather large for street,,510/520 lift hyd roller cam from
COMP CAMS model XR282HR-10.

maybe the timing is off?
