    A little bench racing

    General rule 1 on the bottom will yield two on the top. If you are spinning or not launching as hard as you can, there is time on the table. With a 2.24 60ft time, you have a lot to gain. Easily a half a second in the quarter

    Tire clearance

    That's tight by ay standards, and autocross will exacerbate that lack of clearance. I would be much more confident being closer to the leaf than the well, especially the outer well. How much do you have to the outside? If it is substantially more, consider a spacer. Last, i'm a bit confused...

    LONG covid? COVID Pneumonia?

    I have to ask, because I've seen some changes since last year. Did they test you for the flu? Prior to 2020, it was horribly undertested, but not underdiagnosed. How many times have you gone, or brought your kid to the doc and been told its the flu, rest, liquids and anagesics for fever? But...

    Cam Selection 360

    I can't find the specs on that cam. They aren't listed in your link. I also don't know the stock specs for that engine. I'm not surprised at all that your timing changes made a noticable difference. I don't see ay reason that engine wouldn't take 38 deg. HAve you tried going over 35? IF you...

    My 440 build and HP guess.

    This is a nice cam and is capable of knocking on 500hp inn a 440 with performer RPM heads.

    My 440 build and HP guess.

    Your pistons will tell you the compression for their use with those chambers. IF they don't, you'll have to do some math. YOu could also zero deck the engine to help out. [email protected] is a bit small for a 440, but it depends on the LSA as well. I wouldn't be afraid to go [email protected] If you aren't...

    Carb Venturi Size for 470 ci

    I run a proform 950 and it's 99% street use. I've always preffered a holley style carb. That engine will gladly handle the biggest square bore carb and be very responsive. Also, unless you don't know how to tune a carb, i'd stick with mech sec.

    My 440 build and HP guess.

    What size chambers? I'd guess 440ish HP as well

    Thoughts on this 318 build

    They can get you close without a dyno sheet, but having one definitely helps. I always say the 500$ for a break in and tune on the dyno is worth it's weight in gold and is god insurance.

    Radiator recommendation 71 Dart with 440ci somewhere 460-470hp

    Be Cool 1000hp unit. I've used 3 of them now and have no complaints

    Are you going to have this thing broken in and run on a dyno? If so, wait to buy your convertor

    Carb spacer

    The only spacers I run are HVH super suckers. Reverse ball milled. I've never seen an engine that didn't make more dyno hp and tq after bolting one on

    Thoughts on this 318 build

    Looks pretty good except the stall is too low and the intake would be better if it were a pref RPM. The carb is personal preference. I've run plenty of carters and Edelbrock carbs and have always been disappointed in comparison to Holley based carbs.

    Trans leaking from bell housing

    The only time my transmission leaked, and it leaked from that area, it was overfull. I pulled the pan and found the stick was not the correct. I remarked the full line and never had a leak again

    906 or 915 ?

    I'll see if I can dig it up. This was some 20+ years ago, back when bigblockdart.com still existed, or was at least active. It was this engine. Note the POS Indy dual place sitting on top of it.

    906 or 915 ?

    @wirehead I'm genuinely curious how can you disagree with my post, or what about it you disagree with? I literally built and dyno'd that exact combo, posted the videos and dyno sheets. That combo made [email protected] / [email protected]

    LONG covid? COVID Pneumonia?

    Thank you for proving my point. He never said what you and the rest of the left are claiming. At best, you are taking it out of context, as usual. If anyone would like to avoid taking the time to watch the video, I can post the actual transcript.

    LONG covid? COVID Pneumonia?

    If dosage was the issue? Why not say that? Why not even acknowledge there is a human grade FDA approved version? While I have the human grade version, you can easily dose the animal varieties using some simple math. The ONLY reason people were even taking the animal version is because they...

    manual bucket seat to electric seat 1972 duster

    It would seem that an older model car with similar sized buckets would donate the seats and you'll end up mating the two. The easier way i've seen it having your covers retrofitted on to a late model power seat

    LONG covid? COVID Pneumonia?

    That is good to hear. I have had very good results, amazing really, with people using Ivermectin to treat covid. ONe example; one of my coworkers wives got covid last winter/spring. Bedridden, trip to urgent care, on the verge of heading to the ER. She has some health conditions, so this...

    LONG covid? COVID Pneumonia?

    Well Dave, if we acknowledge T-cells last longer, than we should be happy with natural immunity, but we aren't, well..at least some of us aren't. While the vax doesn't give you covid, it increases your likelihood of contracting it. That's what the data is showing anyhow. I love the line "hence...

    LONG covid? COVID Pneumonia?

    I have several Doctors I am very close personal friends with, not to mention my own background in science. That aside, can you read and also draw simple logical conclusions, because I can. Boosters every three-6 months (currently on shot #7) should have been a warning, however a quick look at...

    My conclusion is the vax set you up for the covid response.

    LONG covid? COVID Pneumonia?

    A new thing i've seen trending is people trying to state that covid causes myocarditis. Pfizer gave half of their trial participants the vaccine, half got saline. They tracked side effects in both groups. No placebo participants got myocarditis, and a side note worth mentioning, none of the...

    LONG covid? COVID Pneumonia?

    I had covid in December 2020, and like most, I had minimal symptoms. I was obviously unvaxxed due to it not being available yet, and plan to stay a pureblood. I felt a little achy for 2 days, which I didn't think was covid. A couple advil and I was good to go and even worked out both days...

    LONG covid? COVID Pneumonia?

    Are you vaxxed? Even if you feel over it, take an Ivermectin tab. It will end it.

    Agree on not mixing. That is bad news. Nothing wrong with bias tires. Both types have advantages and disadvantages.

    After market dash cluster

    I wanted so badly to do a double DIN stereo, but after several attempts, Peak Dash couldn't get it right and it ended up a single DIN.
