Wow 4jaw!! I've never heard of baking before, that sounds like a really good idea! I've always done the tanking and wound up with a mess that you have to coat with oil asap or it'll rust.
Novaman78, the 4th gen nova is a severely underestimated car. I'm outfitting mine for road course duty. it's just a 6 popper auto for now, but I'm planning a 302/4sp build up for it. I've already had the front suspention rebuilt with poly bushings and it handles like a dream-you'd swear you were in a 3rd or 4th gen firebird instead of an old lady's 70's grocery getter.
