    had some issues arise this weekend why trying to tune the car with the new tbss intake and ended up going with these.

    will have a set of 80lb injectors for sale soon if anyone is interested?

    last week we saved another b body here in town, so now my little girl will have her own car
    [img][/img]
    [img][/img]
    [img][/img]

    factory 305 2bbl red on black with ac and vinyl top. cars complete and original, has electric truck button in the dash and a passenger side mirror.
    needs an ac compressor to fix the ac and some seat repairs and a couple cosmetics. do have once sections of the right rear 1/4 that needs cut out but that is all for severe/heavy rust the rest of the car has very little rust.

    well update, wastegates to small. Converters to tight and battery shut off still isn't wired in. Might be putting in a holley hp efi setup so it can run a bump box, boost controller and 2 step function. cheaper to convert to holley then to buy all the parts individually.

    had my brother install the new 60mm tail gate this weekend.

    waiting on some wheels for my front end conversion. going to c4 spindles and c5 brakes, have everything but front wheels and tires.

    PTC 10" converter should b here next week. so ill have that to put in as well

    i will do a write up on the front end. we have a track day coming up for the colorado Camaro club were taking the car to.

    test an tune last month. swapped the converter the night before made a hit and loaded it in the trailer

    tune wasnt right and car was building boost on the line and making power but still not right. going back this coming weekend weather permitting to the last track day of the year and going to see if we can get it tuned completely. car will dead hook on the street now at 5-7lbs. going to do some data logging to see if we have a restriction on the intake or exhaust side as well.
    going to put the car on slicks as well for this weekend
