Aftermarket Questions / Re: Year one rims
« Last post by Aus78Formula on July 07, 2020, 08:27:48 PM »
Haha not bugging anyone. This is the one-piece cast rims, 17x9" with 5-1/8" backspace. The first run used 5-1/4" backspacing, not sure why the change, neither seemed to have dramas.
Should you go with the 2-piece rims, stick to the same backspacing and widths as already works.
I'm not sure of any the tyres in 17 come with coloured lettering or pinstripes, has to be added.

Awesome thank you, sorry to bug lol but what are the suggested offsets sorry again, just kind of ignorant when it comes to the wheels

And where the heck do you find nice tires? Like with the red and white lettering and all that good stuff

The 17's bolt on with no adjustment, they are designed for these vehicles. Stick to the offsets suggested unless you need custom, select tyres to suit. Generally, whatever works on 15's, works on 17's, only the profile changes.

I dont know tires/ wheels so I just dont want to make a mistake and get something that wont fit. If the 17s can bolt on with little adjustments I'd rather go that route but if not the 15s would be the better choice?

1st and 2ng gear ratios are numerically higher than the 200 offering more exceleration.

Exactly the opposite of why you'd want it. It's too short geared for a low-rpm high-torque engine. 10 year old post but has possibly bad information in it.

Aftermarket Questions / Edelbrock AVS2 Carburetor
« Last post by AlanB on July 06, 2020, 08:29:23 PM »
Just finished rebuilding my Pontiac 400 complete with Edelbrock Performer D-Port Heads, Edelbrock Performer Intake, Butler Performance Roller Cam, Ram Air Reproduction Exhuast and Pertronix Flamethrower distributor.  On the dyno, I made 397 HP with the original Q-Jet carb.  Had it set as rich as possible and it was still too lean.  Really like the looks of the Edelbrock AVS2 Carb but in talking with their tech support, he was unusre if it would work with the original air cleaner and shaker hood scoop.  Don't want to buy one and find out it won't fit or that I have to bolt the shaker to the hood (which just looks ridiculous).

Has anybody run this carb and what, if any, are the fit issues with stock air cleaner and shaker scoop?

Thanks!

There should be brackets that the speakers mount to, they are mounted to the dash.

Well...yes I do feel a bit .....nevermind!!
When I purchased this project it was and is in Black primer and I thought the seller stated that it was originally Carousel Red.
So thanks for fixing that issue, I appreciate it. I'm not certain where I got the two numbers mixed up.
Have a wonderful Independence Day....
