The talk about the ignitions is interesting, I will have to do some reading on that. Realistically that is quite far away because this vehicle won't be running on the road till spring. I will have to pick a distributor before then though.

Back to carbs though, is there really any difference in brands? I like the holly carbs because it is a well known name and they make an adapter for their carbs to mount a TPS sensor. Any other brands that you suggest?

And as far a torque converter goes, so a 3000 stall lock up converter will lock up even if it is below the stall rating of the converter? The 4l60e has a .70 overdrive and the rear end is either a 3.73 or 3.83 (can't remember which), that means at 60 I would be doing only around 2000 rpm. Also does the lockup on stall converters operate just the like the stock converters or do you wire them up some other way?
