How are you making out, Meat Drapes? I hope things are OK. Turbo1dr is in Mew Bern. I hope he's OK too!

I did ok. Lots of trees down. Im pretty fortunate considering my location. Minor damage. I wrapped the car in a tarp and then wrapped it with 550 cord. It worked far better than I thought it would. Tarp survived. Worked on car a little bit today for the first time weeks.

I have finally bled the new system. Tilton master @.700 diameter. And the new pedal effort can be depressed by hand. Excellent throwout bearing movement.
SickSpeedMonte is excellent.

I really wish I could have used his kit. It just won't clear the headers and I'm not about to take a crash course in welding to try to modify the ones I have...

I just wish they were 2" primaries, 3.5" collectors and were full length...

I bought the 2241s and ran them for bit. I lost noticeable low end torque and off idle response. I like all my grunt low...all in before 6K.
My build is too mild for them. Only thing I changed was stroke and heads. Cam is the same.

I just picked up the new pedal setup.

I am tired of my left calf looking like Popeye's forearm.

Jeff, good to see you back at it!

Last thing I remember about your car was that it was for sale. Several years ago. Probably around the same time I came close to selling mine lol

I actually sold it Bill. To a kid in the Air Force. I checked up on him twice a year. In the 3rd year I started to pester him to sell it back to me. He caved and I bought it back. In the three years he had it the suspension was upgraded and he notched the frame. Drove it maybe 1000 miles and garage kept it. This is the last time I am doing this. Once the car is done Im doing the Hot Rod Power Tour long haul. Probably in 2020 or 2021.
