well all winter i have been preparing my car for this spring. over the winter it has got upgrades such as going from stock log manifolds and single 2.5inch exhaust to long tube headers, and true dual 2.5inch exhaust, a new single plane manifold, new carburetor, plugs wires cap rotor, sway bar endlinks and bushings, and a good tuneup, as well as all new lifters and pushrods. well for the first tiem this year i took it out all day around town an by the sea. it ran unbelievable. sounds awsome. i did lose a little bottom end torque due to the highrise single plane manifold, but my god when it hits its powerband, your head gets sucked right in the seat. actually stopped at teh sea wall (a road that goes along the beach where a lot of bikers and hotrods hang out) it got a lot of complements and it was a great time. it is getting insured tomorro. after the entire ride i took the spark plugs out and examined each one, and htey looked like the day i jsut bought them. the only issue today was it ran like shit on standard gasoline because of the ethanol and new mixture they have been doing. so i filled it with 97 and it ran beautifully. i do want to thank everyone who helped during this past winter, the car is running like a champ, and turned a lot of heads.
