Re: some N00b question on NOS

I have a 383 with hypers. Sprayed for a couple years with a 100 shot pulling 4 degs. of timing out. Just sprayed it last week with a 150 shot pulling 6 degs. of timing out. I have a separate 1 gal. fuel cell and pump up front for the NOS. I installed a window switch, sprays 2800 to 6000 rpm's. Colde...

Re: "Blitz Black" Info Link

Re: Satin black, whats everyone opinions

Mine has never seen rain aside from the occasional drizzle at the track or something. I used the JD hardener and thinner as recommended. Instead of mixing 8 to 1 we mixed 9 to 1. The JD primer is yellow and took a day to get hard enough to sand without it clumping on the sandpaper. No problems with ...

Re: Satin black, whats everyone opinions

I used the Blitz Black with the recommended JD primer. Wopping cost of $100.00. I think it's been on there for about 4 years now. No problems at all, but also always garaged. http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u142/NEW2MALIBU/BliotzBlack1.jpg http://i167.photobucket.com/albums/u142/NEW2MALIBU/79Pain...

Re: wheel studs

So I am going to assume you currently have 7/16"- 20 up front now. You can knock those studs out. Drill out the holes with a 29/64 drill bit, tap with 1/2"- 20 tap and use the ARP screw in studs. Or knock a stud out and measure it with a caliper. My stock studs up front were like .475 in. Either way...

Re: wheel studs

What rear do you have in the car? 7/16" or 1/2" studs?

Re: Who's running around the street with drag radials?

275/60/15 MT drag radials here. No issues. My only suggestion is when it comes to the track I fire em up in the burnout box just like I would with a slick. The MT site says do little to no burnout. I tried that and would always spin coming off the line.

Re: Suspension lean/sag, can't figure it out???

I had a similar problem with my 67 Chevelle. I changed everything, body bushings,front and rear springs, ball joints, front and rear control arm bushings. Still had a 1/2"-3/4" sag on the passengers side. I ended up putting a small spacer in the front spring and added an additional rubber isolator o...

Re: Fuel pump wiring question...

The nitrous arm switch is 30 amps. My solenoids run off of a relay and are fed off of a different circuit.

Re: Fuel pump wiring question...

I just wired mine off of my nitrous arming switch, fed thru a 10 amp fuse. When I turn the switch on it energizes my nitrous control circuit and turns the fuel pump on.

Re: 100 shot?'s

nice copper........None of those lines and fittings are suitable for drag racing...plus they are heavy Just copper coated. Been running fittings like that for 20+ years.....have never had a problem. I'm an electrician so I would get my fittings from the pipe fitters. Not an all out race car, just m...

Re: Cam selection help

Jump onto Comp Cams and download CamQuest 6.0. You can play around with that for many cam choices.

Re: do i need adj lower rear control arms?

I currently have a Holley 4150 street hp. Not sure if this is gonna work out with the nitrous tho. I have had good luck with it, seems to perform well.
