Has this thread run its course? 90caprice408, or do you plan on finishing it! Its been stagnant since April? Or did we all waist our time with you!!! These type of threads not finished are bad for the site!!! No one gets anything worthwhile out of the thread if it isn't brought to a close with what was found as the problem. If you straightened out the problem you should come on here and at least tell what you found or close the thread with a "ITS RUNNING FINE"

Good call Jester, that happens all too often - people just bail and don't post to let all the people who gave advice know what worked
Maybe should re-title the thread 'very lazy 400 owner'. A resolution would be nice.

I apologize for not keeping you guys posted with what's been going on, haven't had much time to get on the computer lately......as far as the car goes "iTS RUNNING FINE"....I upgraded the rear gears to a 4.30 and come to find out the gears that came out were the original 3.42 even tho I was under the impression that somebody had switched them to 3.73 for me a few yrs back......I had the person that installed my gears drive the car so he could tell me what he thought, his response was "the car runs damn good"...he did tell me that it felt like the car was kinda starving for fuel once it got into the higher rpms

Thanks for posting. Glad to hear you got it licked.

This is a very common problem for a lot of guys that install a big cam and think something's wrong.

So it's running fine but it's not? Is there a blockage in the fuel system or is it running lean? Check to see if you have good fuel pressure.
