    I am planning to buy an after market Dianan 335i turbocharger for my 1970 Buick Skylark. Would this turbocharger be compatible with a 350.4 Chevy Small Block? Are these Turbochargers good? What would I need to make it fit a 350?

    Is 10.5 compression ratio going to be to much? Vortex heads, 111 lobe, big cam (haven't decided which one), flat tops, on 91 EFI in Az. Thanks for your help. I'm sure I missed some specs, so let me know.

    My 1987 TBI swapped carb 3/4 ton 350 truck has been running into issues. It started missing badly, so I replaced spark plugs and wires, cap and rotor, then after total loss of spark i replaced ignition module and ignition coil (note HEI distributor), which gained spark back. So I continued to...

    Since I was 8 (around the farm) I have been driving the same 1987 Chevrolet v20. Now I am 18 and It is beginning to require work. The previous owner swapped it from TBI to a 1406 carb, but I know more than that needed to be changed, rerouted, and "tricked" in order to make it run right with a...

He shut it off and started it...

    The brakes on my 74 chevy k20 have 0 brake pressure. Im sure air got into the lines and ill have to bleed the brakes but where could the leak be? This problem didn't develop over a period of time. My dad borrowed my truck one day and said he had no brakes at all. I drove it and there is no...

    So my 1974 350 chevy has had really bad luck with starters. Remanufactured, brand new from 2 different stores. They seem like none fit right on the truck. Currently the starter will turn over very slowly if the truck has been recently running. Cold start, it starts up right away. then i drive...

    i just replaced the blown head gaskets on my sbc 350. i set the valves(i think correctly) and its having trouble starting. I primed the carb and it turns over very rough and runs very very hard for 2 seconds and dies. Im not sure if thats due to incorrect valve set or the distributor. i hope im...

    After just replacing my head gaskets, been stumped on setting the valves on my sbc 350. I cant get the truck to start and i went to double check the valves. When i turn the engine to get TDC 1, i feel that there's no compression on cylinder 1 and i have no clue why. I dont know if its just the...

    I recently changed my head gaskets so i obviously i had to relieve the tension from the push rods on the rocker valves. No im stuck with resetting them to the correct positions. Ive looked online for the sequences but every time i think i set it correctly and try to start it, the engine turns...
