Since I have converted my Corsa from a 140 to a 180, I have a "140 conversion kit" I want to sell, partly to fund the rebuild on the motor of the '65 Riviera I just bought. I put about 2,500 miles on these parts before I converted. Heads and carbs are rebuilt by Raffee, have receipts for $1,800 (no thermistor-sorry). All the sheet metal is powder coated, new Clarks logs, cherry bomb mufflers

Well since I finished the 140>180 conversion and had one more garage space open I made an impulse buy last week. 1965 Buick Riviera from an estate sale. It's a time capsule, was in storage for 40 years. Has 83k miles on it. Power windows, antenna, seat, cruise, air, trunk release, full tint, tilt wheel. Trying to get it started now, have the carb off and the Marvel Mystery oil out....

Hi Guys, Was wondering if anyone has ever experienced. For some reason the last couple times I've filled up, when I refill the fuel tank it keeps splashing back at me. This isn't just at near full condition. The tank is near empty, and unless I fill suuuuper slow, I get splash back. Then today after work I went out and there was a big puddle of gas that had leaked down from the gas cap. I

In 3rd I looked down n the snow meth gauge said 9 lbs n I was near 70 mph.

Just took my 180 corsa for a first ride. Wow. Car is transformed. I used a 270 cam, B/F turbo, ported exhaust ports, and wrapped the exhaust. Also bought a wolf yh, works perfect. With 16 deg initial timing it is very responsive, have boost in 1st gear. Meth injection comes on perfectly. Can't ask for more.

Fired up the 180 in my '65 Corsa. Now the fettering, little fuel line leak, little oil leak at the turbo oil feed line, need to connect the turbo fuel return line at the tank, valve adjustment, etc. Need to hide the methanol lines better too, or go to black i/o red.....

I'm putting a snow performance meth injection system on my 180 Corsa. Was wondering if anyone else is using this system, what size nozzle(s) do you use? I tapped each head, and mounted a nozzle holder where the intake meets the head on each side. Based on the charts I have I was thinking a number 2 on each side.... Will start with using the factory YH, but also have a 32/36 DGV I'd like to
