78 trans am problems
« on: March 10, 2010, 08:53:44 PM »
Get my car all painted up all new interior in it looking good right? Order a decal set. Thats pretty expensive. Get a guy who used to put them on in the factory to come out and do it. cool beans right? wrong! he screws it all up. Anyway order a new bird get a family friend who paints up high end cars he comes out bird looks terrific now. hip hip hooray! WRONG! start the tuning on the motor get it runnin mean mean, take it out and do a big ol power brake four barrel wide open. Pull away and its runnin horrible get it home, take the carb and adapter off and replace all the gaskets. Guess what I NEED AN INTAKE! Hahahah so im getting boned quite honestly but eh this is half the fun right? Brand new edelbrock EGR by-passed aluminum one on the way. All I need is a million more dollars and this bird will be perfect. Thanks for listening to me vent
