what cheap cars are there to learn on.

mopar is a bad starter build. cars are a premium

the 350" chevy will yeild best results per dollar, with the most hosts.

i suggest a rering on a good spinning mottor. that way you only break into the top half. gets your feet wet cold timming an engine. serious internal next time.

get a $ 40 summit .420/.442 cam, used weiand action +/ performer intake, a factory GM HEI w/ vacuum adavance, the $68 summit rering kit , and a craigs list edelbrock (best for starters) carb. get it together

learn how to break a cam in, and rebuild a carb...but most off all.... learn to tune the HEI distributor curve/ and vacuum can! that is were the power comes out.

you can tell if people are successfull tunning the performer package. some will say its a dog that cant bark the tires..

the tuners can make a smoke show with it, and it has a great passing gear kickdown.
