A little update. The bed is off and about to do the 5-3 lowering kit. had some rust on the firewall that we cut out and patched. transmission is in progress of a rebuild. Rims came in yesterday. Should have the firewall sanded down and painted by the end of the week. Engine and tranny should go in next week.

My neighbor has a '70 Firebird with a 455 in it. He's running old school Thrush's and it makes these new ones sound like freakin sewing machines.

Easy there, too much carb cfm will cost you some low end torque. As you know the higher the intake velocity the better the torque curve. An exhaust gas analyzer will help get it jetted for whatever fuel you run. 12.8 to 13.2 afr should be about right up thru 4000 rpm then a tad richer to around 12.0 for corn gas.
Would be nice to see 02 sensors at the collector and Lambda meter so you can monitor AFR's. All you need is narrow band bosch sensors. Summit racing has some. It's always so easy to spend other people's money
