Well, got a wild hair up the buttocks, and decided to fire it up tonite. The headers didn't have to be second coated after all, so decided to toss them on. Well, after they were on, just had to toss the starter on, and turn the key. (well, push the switch, but whatever).
After tinkering with the timing a bit, (had it a little retarded), it fired right up.
Definitley sounds different than last years motor.
Runs like hell up to about 4 grand, (ratty/missing sounding), but after that, it has a life of its own. It hurts the ears.
GOD I LOVE IT!!!!!

Well, now gotta take the headers off, and retorque the head bolts, and reset lash. Then I guess I"ll toss the headers back on, run it a little bit more, and then yank it out for the dyno session.
Never a dull moment.

It's going to get 'yanked', (as in taken out soon again), and they trucked up for the dyno session on march 7th.
Then 'back into the car', for transmission install, and detailing out.

First track time is I think April sometime.
About 5 weeks away or something like that.

And, yes, the carb is powder coated (I think that's what it's called).
Biggs Carb did it. (looks great).
