I sure hope you can gravity feed the drain, it sure does look close... I would think you would still need a blow off valve on the inlet side. When the throttle plates shut quickly the boost will slam them shut. It would be easy enough to add. Just a thought. Good Luck! :)-D

I will state right from the start, I am far from a tree hugger, particularly driving my Big block Nova! If you fully read the article, it does state the hybrid does in fact impact the environment less over its lifetime. Initial carbon emissions are higher but lower over its life resulting in a net lower amount. Electrics are even better depending on where you live. If you live in West Vir

Hopefully it won't be and issue, time will tell. I will be making sure that it is smoothed and no sharp edges. I might even cut that spot back a bit towards the gasket to thicken up the area to help prevent heat concentration there.

The originals were a real hack job!!! The seat is taller than stock so you measure the seat height and bore the pocket to that it will be flush with the combustion chamber.

I have begun building the engine for my 63 spyder. I am basing the build on Dave Binnie's blowthrough 140 build. To start with I am rebuilding the heads for the engine myself. Ken Hand has given me some pointers in the build. The cores were in rough shape, but because I am seriously modifying them that was not really an issue. Here are some pics: Even one of the stock spark plug

You could also do a 97-2002 camaro, No inflator needed. 16" Rim but still smaller than factory tire. The inflate type tires allowed a larger tire in a smaller place. When you had a flat on a Posi car and you inflated the tire it was the same size as a full size tire so there was no damage to the posi unit.

As I posted in the other thread late 80's camaro/firebird had a compact that fit LM, I have a 90 Nissan Sentra Spare in my EM trunk it is a 14" tire but rim size is not an issue since it is a donut tire.

I had the pleasure of stopping in at Ken's place while I was on vacation in Florida. It was great to see his setup first hand and take some great ideas home with me. (tu) :)-D.

In 53 Ed Cole purchased this car Hotchkiss Gregoire from the auto show. All aluminum and horizontally opposed aluminum engine. They did get wrong on what position he held in 53. I was at the Tampa auto museum and they had alot of unique vehicles, basically that is what they collect. It is actually a private collection that is open to public viewing. All the cars are plated and can be driven

That first one is a 200 car even here in the ne. Mine was 350 and needed everything, but was much better. You could check out the link in my sig for initial pics, plus mine is a true Spyder, would have passes it up if it wasn't.
