I wouldn't stress it. A slight fluctuation isn't a concern. My old Bronco did that and it lived to see 297k miles.

I've lost interest in the conference vs conference mess over the past year. This year, I just followed Ole Miss. After week 1 when it became apparent it was going to be another losing season, I...

I live in Georgia surrounded by "dawg" fans. It was so satisfying watching their whole world implode. Georgia has been badly overrated.

RP already contains a good bit of FM. I don't think you'd want to add a bottle of FM to it. Be mindful not to let the FM levels get too high as FMs contain sulfur, and too high of sulfur levels in...

At the same time, how do you put heat in an engine? By putting a load on it.

I feel like we've had this discussion before. I'm getting a lot of deja vu.

I normally don't allow my car to warm...

Does your intake manifold have an exhaust crossover under the plenum / carb pad? If so, there's no warm up on the carb necessary. Just hop in, fire it up, and drive.

If you have a hesitation...

Anybody who says an auto is boring has never gone out and raced a well built auto.

That's ok. I'll gladly be bored waiting for you at the finish line. You know what's really boring? Sitting in...

What year is your 289 block? Keep in mind that the early years used a 5-bolt bell housing instead of the standard 6-bolt.

I actually like a small step from the runner into the port with the runner slightly smaller. It helps with air velocity and can act as a reversion dam at lower rpm usually without sacrificing...

When I was a teenager, I tied a pair of my mom's panty hose together to act as a water pump belt to make it home. It worked.

I'm still here. I'm still an asshole. I'm on the recovering end of a depressive swing that I've been dealing with for the past year. I've got a kid on the way. Life is... okay.

No problem. Ask away. I tried to spec out a cam that would come close to 500 hp with those heads, but it required a cam with 260+ duration @ .050" and more lift than the AFR valve springs will...

If you want the car to be mostly street driven and used in autocross, then this is what I suggest. Durability is a factor and being able to...

Octane tolerance is about dynamic pressure, not static compression. I've run 10.4 on iron heads with 93 and 34* timing and it did just fine because I kept the dynamic pressure down at lower rpm. ...

Just noticed the shorty headers also. You've got a mismatch of parts. The heads are small for the displacement and wants to breathe in the mid-range, the intake wants to pour the power on up high,...

That cam is holding you back, so is the compression, but I'd say about 440-450 hp at 5500-5800 rpm and 430-440 tq at 4400-4800 rpm. It's going to have a hard time holding the power out past 6000 rpm...
