Thanks All...it'* a fun project.
All this and it gets about 10 to 13mpg..
I got to lean it out/fiddle with the carb and Transmission to see if I can get that up a bit. I was hoping for the 15 to 18mpg, but I might have to just accept that it is what it is. I'm pretty certain I've cracked 350hp/300lb-ft. numbers. A pool is currently going on at work amongst the gearheads. High estimate is above 400hp at the wheels.
Kim described the car pretty well... "It'* just 'effin mean."
The filter (K&N 14x3) is a bit of a nod to Florida weather. With an open cowl induction system, I could just mentally picture the first thunderstorm turning the paper filter to mush being sucked down the intake.
Does this belong in a Bonnie?...sure, somebody bring me an 60'*/70'*/early 80'* RWD Bonneville and we can do the same thing to it. (Probably get it to thunder down the road the same way
