Re: How can I improve my cars horsepower and sound

Yeah, start with a 355 built to '70 LT1 specs...tickle it with a 150HP whiff of nitrous...then you're ready for Street Outlaws. ;)

P.S. Weren't we talkin' about inline sixes? Whatever...

Re: How can I improve my cars horsepower and sound

I agree with Dave here, for the reason of how well the head will seal.
The inline sixes were only made with two rows of head bolts, yielding 4 bolts / cylinder.
With the V8's, you have 5 bolts /...

Re: rear diff decoded

Well, to be certain, Mr.Gasket's 8.5" rear end will be a little beefier than the one featured in my old Vega, but I just wanted to interject that there's another way to decipher what gear ratio...

Exclamation Re: rear diff decoded

If you're trying to decipher the gear ratio, take the cover off and spin the ring gear.
Eventually, you'll come across some writing on the edge of the gear.
Some of it will be two sets of numbers...

Re: 65 rear differential

Could it be that your LSD was made for an 8.5" rear end?
Could be why it won't fit in your 8.2" rear end.

Re: How can I improve my cars horsepower and sound

That's only one variation of the Sagniaw, Dave.
There was also a 3.5/1.89 and 3.11/1.84 gearset, as well as the standard truck gearset; 2.85/1.68.
GM took those 3-peed gearsets and developed...

Thumbs up Re: How can I improve my cars horsepower and sound

One thing you can do with any inline six is to replace the stock muffler with a straight thru muffler (like a cherry bomb).
Sound won't be that obtrusive, but will definitely take on a much better...

Re: Richmond 5 speed

Would be nice if you could replace the seat with one that had a cutaway in the middle, or if you could just cut a hunk away from the middle and reupholster.

Stock power ratings?

Anyone know what the HP & torque rating was for a regular ol' 396 & 427 was?
I'm talking about something you might've pulled out of a dump truck, NOT an L78 or similar.
I used to know, but have...

Re: Richmond 5 speed

Aukai,

In my mind, can't go wrong with the classic Hurst shifter topped with the white ball that features the shifter pattern in black. -b

Re: Richmond 5 speed

Other way around.
Richmond owns Doug Nash (or did, anyway).
They used to offer "The Doug Nash Transmission", but I don't see it at Richmond's site (https://www.richmondgear.com/) anymore.

Re: 72 & 73 hoods same?

Thanks for posting the pics Ramportin.
I always thought the '73 hood was shaped differently, but I see now why I thought that.
