Right with triple deuces and a 4 speed.

Indulge me on the ignition system you intend to setup. The accepted norm, that is, the way we setup ignition systems for the c2's and c3's and the old small blocks is with a MSD distributor, blaster 2 coil, 6a or 6al box, MSD custom fit wires with insulation, and AC Delco spark plugs gapped to 0.045. This provides a reliable hot spark even when we are very rich and cylinder pressures are very high. But all that takes wiring know how and knowledge on moving timing components and setting up a curve by choosing springs and a stop bushing. There is also a notable financial cost to this system. So then are you going to run the points and the 9v coil? set your dwell and be happy with an ignition system to match the 6psi or less of fuel pressure feeding that tri-power? Or will you come off the grand to provide a hot spark to this legendary engine you are building?

Really? I mean you are definitely a legend. But what did you race a 572ci corvette with? Some might come back down to reality after being called out for the lies. Ya know slowly recoil back to the right path after posting a picture of someone else's car as if it were yours. But I see you are doubling down on your deranged fantasy life here on the internet. Good for you.

Going racing again this week, guys. Gonna make a change to my car this time, too. I am gonna switch away from the quiet magnaflow mufflers to the Borla setup. I have installed these before and just love the way they look and sound..




My mufflers should arrive on Thursday and raceday is Friday. Guess I will be staying late at work.

The Red 2011 GS is getting used to his car. He went and made some 1/8 mile runs over the weekend. He is 0791 as always..

I'm tired of these mufflers always muffling the sound of my awesome LSX and bringing down the appearance of my car's undercarriage.



The Borla axle back kit arrives and will be installed tomorrow.

Now that is the right way to finish off my ARH exhaust system..



And she makes more noise now, too. I couldn't be happier. The wife has to work tomorrow evening and Saturday and so I will not get to go racing this weekend. But that is ok. I have plans to dump the GM fuel filter/regulator for a high quality fuel pressure regulator. No need for a filter with my injectors. And then once I have my fuel upgrade and my better flowing exhaust in place I will get back on the dyno and retune and see if I cant get that 357rwhp up to 370 or 380.

RACING...Because with baseball, football, basketball, tennis, and golf, you only need one ball

I used to think that I had learned patience as I got older. Then I realized that I just didn't give a shit

Yes and there are people at the track that do a lot better. I know you are not suggesting that you had any hand in that car making that time. Right? Because I was right there in those days when you were posting your stupid exaggerated 'racing advice' while ABN was sending me PMs here and Emails asking me for tuning help. Try to lie about this and I will start posting those pleas from hardcore right here.

Be careful about what narrative you try to push here dumb fuck I have my bases covered and am always prepared to back up ANYTHING I say here. Unlike you.

ABN was trying to race. And good for him that he finally broke into the 10's. That's like 1 second for each set of plugs he bought to figure out his tune. I am pretty sure that means in the hands of a more capable tuner that same car would have gone a bit faster. BUT I could be wrong.
