    Bought a car from him from 500 mi away and when it landed in Canada, it was exactly as he described. A-1 seller. Better than expected. Honesty is rare these days but not to Steve. Thanks, Bud. Mike

    Street Lites 15x8 fr and rear

    Has anyone put 8 in. on both the fr and rear with maybe a 255/60/ 15 rear and 235/60/15 front? I don't want the big and little look. What back-spacing will look correct without the tires sticking out? Also. where did the pic of the white car with Billet Specialties go? Can't find it.

    '97 SSEI any good?

    I'm looking at a '97 B-ville that is in super shape and dealer serviced its whole life. After driving it I was'nt that impressed with the power. Thought it was going to be a bit better. Are they slugs? What easy mods to make this thing more fun? I know nothing about these cars as far as...

    Ford 2.3 race motor carb tuning

    I have a 2.3 Ford circle track car with a 460 lift cam and are having some trouble with the carb tuning. My LM - 1 shows 10.2 to 1 @ 6500 rpm. Too rich. Changed the power valve in the Holley 350 cfm carb from a 8.5 to a 4.5 and now it seems to be bogging. I thought it would go leaner but...

    f/p regulator Q & A

    Could someone please explain how the f/p reg. works. There is vacuum until boost and then does the boost goes threw the line from the t/body / block to put pressure on the diaphram to increase the f/p? I'm trying to figure out why my f/p only goes up 20 psi when it should go up 25 psi for...

    I have a weird sputtering noise with my car that started last year. Drove it today and went w.o.t. a few times with alky spraying and 24 psi. No knock at all (.7deg. once) and runs great but does'nt sound/feel right. Pulled the plugs and all 3 on the pass. side are grey. Drivers side...

    Do you know Jack?

    Last year, yes last year, I bought a 3200 stall converter from Cottons', and installed it. Waited a while to get to the track to see if it was the ticket to get me into the 11's. Did'nt have much luck. Bested three 12.1's in a row. Same as always but the mph dropped off. Determined that the...

    Crank away, no more than 20psi.

    I've just finished installing h/g's and been slowly turning up the wick. For some reason now I can't get over 20 psi. of boost even if the high boost actuator is cranked so tight it takes two of us to put it on. I'm running alky and previously had 24-25 psi. Next question is why would...
