It seems that the most common 4-bbl used is the Holley 390cfm. But I am sure several people here will chime in with horror stories about it, and have other suggestions. I bought my Moredoor with this set-up already on it, and it has been GREAT! I do not know what may have been done to the internals of this engine, but the visible things I see, are the center-mount 4, and headers. Pulls much s

I used to frequently see one of those when I was just knee high to a grasshopper. I always thought it was a custom built airporter, never realized it was factory built.

Are you sure that those are your Yanko Sale Panels, and not real YENKO Sail Panels? His sure look a lot sharper on the top, whereas your look a little bit shorter, and more rounded. And what is up with the sound on that video? Am I the only one who has zero volume when trying to watch it?

Seth is correct, I believe the legal term is "Fiduciary Responsibility", once they go public, the share holder is the person of primary importance, NOT the consumer. It is the LAW. Just curious here,(serious question, I do not know, and am not trying to start anything) are those successful non-US car makers that are producing cars in the US operating union plants?

Carverman, I don't think anyone here is trying to "demean your task", they are trying to be helpful. While it may not be being expressed in a way that you are understanding, they are simply trying to tell you that pursuing HP gains through an electric fan is not a truly viable option in the long run. You are running down a rabbit-hole for a gain of just a few HP, when you could be spending valu

That is cool. I remember reading about that conversion way back when I first got into Corvairs. But, at $ $1299.oo and needing to do the entire conversion your self, I would think that it would be simpler just to spend the $150 extra and get the bolt-on ready to go, Ted Brown dual TBI efi, with TSP distributor included for $1449.oo . Just my thoughts

Okay, at the risk of sounding quite ignorant. How do you guys determine if your shocks need replacing? I was always taught, "Bounce the car up and down. If the car rebounds more than twice, you need new shocks." But I have never had a Corvair of mine rebound more than once and stop. Push it up and down a couple times and let go, it levels, and comes to a stop. So what is correct?

Quick acceleration from a stop-light in my book always equals. . . . Street Racing! But we don't talk about illegal activities on this forum, it is family friendly. 8-) But, as you have noted, I don't always see things in the same light as others, so what else would it be good for?
