Thanks, it's cool being loud and I don't mind it but I plan on getting a quiet exhaust eventually.  Right now it's headers and open x pipe (no mufflers) right before the axle.

I agree the Boss 302 is a great car from the factory.  I've driven that car a few times...very fast on a roll!

That one is up in the air right now but it's a '78.  It was an auto car but the previous owner made it a 4 speed.  It was in a body shop jail in wauconda for about 5 years and was just released a few months ago.

sound like the timing is way off or it's idling way to low

Yea, definitely a popcorn machine with open headers and choppy cam at that time.  I tore my car down and converting to fuel injection now...hopefully everything should smooth out now.  Thanks for responding because I need to update this thread.

Took the back end of the car apart.  I'm preparing it apply a KBS chassis coater kit (gloss black).
