o,brother, give me a break. Who do you think is gonna figure it out? Me. I'm the one who owns it and i'm the one working on it. I'm asking for advice and telling you what i've got. No need to get cranky. I've posted on 2 different forums and got guys telling me its to rich, to lean, to low compression, to big carb, secondaries aren't opening, secondaries opening to soon........... lets just be friends allright? I know just as much as anyone that 90 psi is very low and i know the cam is to big. But anyways back to the facts: We got it figured out. It was way to rich. The secondaries are opening really quick since i was using the yellow spring and i may change it still but it works but will likely bog if i put sticky tires on it. But the real problem was i had it jetted 86 / 82 with the 6.5 PV. I changed the PV to a 3.5 which i had originally tried but with bigger primary jets. Now i jetted it down to 72 on the front and it made an amazing difference. I haven't changed the back jets yet but i still may bring them down a bit too. I don't have o2 sensor or a dragstrip and i live on a gravel road so thats why this is a little bit trial and error for me. Before the car would shake and labor at 4000 rpm in 3rd till about 5000 rpm then start to smooth out and pull again. I guess it was after 5000 that it couls start using up all that extra fuel i was giving it.
BTW - i weighed the car last night and its 2930 without me and i'm another 190. I also set the timing to 40, it was 37 if i remeber correctly. i'm thankful to those who offered help. BTW- when i said it had loads of power i'm talking maybe between high 11's to mid 12's in the quarter. To me thats fairly quick, I'm sure thats slug slow to some others. thats ok..... Power is maybe 400 -450. good power to some, wimpy to others, thats ok too.....
I'm trying to sell the car right now but if i get it to the track i'll know for sure and post the times. Maybe i'm dead wrong then you can laugh at me for building a mismatched piece of junk. thats ok too... I also built a 10 second malibu street/strip car that has run 9.80 on the bottle so i know a little about what i'm doing
