    Awesome Very Happy  These cars last forever my 37 year old sbc 350 still does burn outs and runs smooth as hell ..by the way are you using your stock air cleaner?

    I am still using the Low profile edelbrock one, I no longer have the stock one..
    Do you still gotta squirt a little fluid in the carb on cold mornings?
    When u start it cold and feel for warm air coming from the heat stove on the passanger exhaust manifold.
    Maybe you can fab a little box to funnel that warm air to the carb for better warm up. The hot air duct tubing is at autozone $10

    Only when its REALLY cold out. 15 degrees or colder. but its only a tiny squirt and it fires up and idles normal I think that may be from having a 750cfm carb though. there is a spot on the bottom of the air filter where I could run some sort of tube there from the heat stove I might look into that.
    Yea should be like 1 1/2" or so ..
    The hot air helps it atomiotize the fuel and warm up quicker
    Glad the Chevys running good
