bygddy Spent some quality time today getting acquainted with my Holley lol. Was pig rich on idle yesterday, smoke out the tail pipes and made my wife sick when she followed me through town. Plugged all vacuum ports. Then started from scratch with the idle screws 1.5 turns out. Couldn't control idle no matter what I did. So reset the float levels, they were a touch high, then pulled Carb and closed up rear transfer slots until almost completely closed. Reset fronts to square, the reinstalled. Now had control of my idle finally. Idle at 1000, my 12yr old daughter in the car, on the brakes in gear, turned the mixture screws in until it started to stumble, then back out 1/4 turn. (No vaccum guage handy) then back in park. Hooked up vacuum advance to manifold source. Idle jumped up, adjusted back down until 800rpm, and 650 in gear, no more smell, no more smoke, and the response is amazing. Its neat what an hour of time and some effort will accomplish lol.

bygddy So much fun it hurts my brain, first night actually out driving it, on the way to car wash, car looked absolutely gross dirty, and got into a roll with a new coyote car. From a 40k roll I had 2 cars on him until we shut down around 120k....it just pulls soooo well, especially for an "overcarbed" small cam, small cube motor. And with 327 gears it is a highway animal....its tight, it drives amazing, no leaks, nothing weird....and this trans is amazing. And I'm shocked at the positive attention and remarks it got from the carbwash, gas station, corner store.....gtech says 12.66......and I'm inclined to agree........so thanks everyone, Vinnie, tech, fdird, and everyone else who chimed in. And btw I attribute how strong it is sticktly to the heads....because with a 268 and 355ci it shouldn't pull like it does.....+1 for pro-filer....

Sounds GREAT, btw.
