[BIG RED DONE STAMP\]

I got it togeter and found out the guy I let work on Rosco last way over dialed the fuel press and the gauge broke when it pegged out @80+psi. I dialed it down to get it to run- on 3 cyl! I pulled the fuel rail and found all but 3 inj where jammed. I got a set of LT1'* off of E-bay for $80 and finally got to install them today! It lit right off! After a quick tune of the fuel press and timing he passed the check flight 4.0. So now I got the get the flange for the y pipe to cat installed and recoat the y pipe and a couple of little elec prob and he'* good to go. No vac leaks and no glowing headers! **** EDELBROCK!
YEA VORTEC!!!!

Rosco'* back. Also it someone knows can tell me a free mpeg hoster I can post a vid later.
