This is a street car apart from 2 or 3 'run wot you brung' days a year. Having said that, I do tend to 'drive' it unlike most of the rodders I've met in the UK who swan around seldom over 3000rpm. My motor pulls incredibly well between 4 & 5K considering the 8.5:1 compression and there lies part of the problem along with a naf cam. However, I dont have money for cam - heads - etc so I must enjoy what I have. The motor was new 2 years ago. At 10K miles most if not all the valve stem seals destroyed themselves! The dealer was very good about it although had never seen anything like it before. I am considering modifying the Lid of the K&N air filter so the breather pipes run in through the top and are directional towards the centre of the holley.
