Re: Mostmint Racing 2019 schedule

I spoke with a friend who drives in Champcar and he told me that all the entries have been filled for the Indy race. Do you have a slot confirmed?

Andy, I've scanned the article. I'll send it to you via email. It's a PDF file.
I've sent it to bfusa.com. The only one I have right now.

Re: 89 Corvette Mostmint #39

Have you seen the article by Marlin Davis in the Dec 2018 Hot Rod magazine about hot rodding a 350 TPI engine? I can provide a copy if you want it.

Yes. Then when you have to remove the head sometime later, you just remove the bolts, stand aside and start the engine. :lol:

Re: 1978 Lincoln Continental Coupe

I have been studying my tuning concepts and I'm inching my way forward. If you don't do something to the Lincoln, you won't catch me. :evil:

Re: Solder Seal Wire Connectors

Thanks for the heads-up on these, Jim. They look interesting so I went on eBay and bought a hundred for $10 for testing purposes.
We can check them out when they arrive.

Re: SBC 350 + Test Stand

No we have not, but we are flexible. I wouldn't mind working on another one, but at this point in time I have shifted by attention to my HpTuners course. I intend to spend more time in the new year working on that as it applies to my TBSS. Happy New Year to all my good buddies on TireSmoke. :mrgreen:

Re: Dodge Challenger Hellcat rebuild video

Hey Maverick. After watching these videos, I was thinking that we should tackle a project like this :mrgreen: since the BBC motor thing seems to be dying on the vine.

Hey Fred! Great choice! That little six has 68 more advertised HP than my '89 Firebird Formula (240 HP) with a TPI SBC.
