Yeah, it was getting pretty hard on gas towards the end; somewhere like 7-9 mpg on a good day. It all changes on the freeway though; had it up to 15-17 mpg. That's why I was thinking fuel injection of some kind, either multi-port or tbi for better in town mileage. The late model idea was due to price- can't beat those half-off sales at pick-a-part!
That's interesting though. Would getting rid of the smog bump on the heads be something I can reasonably do myself?
I was also told that a mild stroker setup with either an offset ground crank(making a 4.125 stroke) or a regular stroker crank(only one I could find was 4.150). Any thoughts?
If I read my diff tag right, I've got a 9" gear with a 2.75 ratio. I was considering an AOD but wasn't sure it would be better than the C6 I have now; perhaps it's time to reconsider.
