Plus you're comparing 100 extra cubes, regardless of tuning or setup, pointless.

What is the original exhaust pipe size that came on a 1980 T/A 301 carburated, 2" oe 2.25"?

Also does anyone sell RamAir exhaust manifolds for the 301?

Did search but could not find any information on this. Thank you

DriveTrain / Re: Vehicle bogs upon acceleration BUT only during the summer
« Last post by Stringer on July 20, 2018, 08:45:31 PM »

Believing my problem to be fuel related I sought out a high performance mechanical pump for my Olds 403. The specs for the one I had was 30/gph @ 5.5psi. The one I replaced with was a Spectra with a flow rate of 45/gph @ 7psi.  I have been driving it the last few days with today being the hottest at 108 degrees. The vehicle feels much stronger all the way around. Weather it is cool outside or hot, it feels better stronger during the acceleration.  It is much better than before.

That being said...... I am still experiencing a little flutter under hard acceleration. I suppose I can live with that because for normal (and moderate) acceleration it would appear that the higher flow rate and psi of the pump is keeping up.

Anyone know of an even higher flow rate pump?

I'm obv just stirring, but so many on these things seem to think the options run out once the part can't be sourced or fixed from within the local towns around them.

Canada is quite local if you have to ship a transmission around the world.

HMMM...good point sir
60% original paint.....scratched but not damaged? That doesn't agree and possibly doesn't even qualify as a any of that survivor crap. If you can enjoy it as a nice original car, do just that. If it needs tidying up so it's presentable enough to be able to take to the shops without ridicule, do that also. If you don't want it, sell it. Let someone else lose money on something that they choose.
Absolutely, paint the poor thing. No one should be rewarded for not maintaining a vehicle unless it's in a museum. And yet we give them accolades and trophies for owning a piece of crap that has been parked in the sun for 30 years on rotted tyres and has the original plug leads that were due for tossing decades earlier. Yes, paint it, look after it. Originality is great where the condition allows its use without holding the rest of the vehicle back. It's your car, if you don't have an opinion on it, I'm not sure you'll find one on here to agree on.
