The custom valved Bilsteins from Maier are the "old" non adjustable shocks. The new (and better) JRI shocks are hellaciously expensive. It's basically equivalent to a Penske, which are also crazy...

Shocks also need to be matched to springs. So if you cut the coils you've increased spring rate, and with a shock that's too soft it may not be able to effectively dampen the motion.

Actually, his setup that he recommends for the street and track isn't really that stiff, and rides extremely well. Mainly it's the shocks, but he told me a while back they they still only use the...

Move out of a state that requires smogging a 72?

Chances are once you lean the idle out the HC and CO will both resolve. HC is typically too rich, but can also be a partial misfire condition...

Carbs and dynos can be a bit tricky, dynos don't always load the engine the same way it's loaded in road operation, so they can sometimes deliver incorrect AFR's on a dyno; or if you tune it on some...

How can the shop that built it, not know what's in it? Do they not keep records? That's pretty irresponsible.

Find out if it's solid or hydraulic first, if you suspect there might be a solid cam.

They're both moly lube, just a slightly different type. Black is organic moly, and red is synthetic. The red stuff is generally higher quality and more expensive.

I prefer Wilwood, very cost effective and extremely high performance. No frills, just brakes that work (including racing environments where they do most of their work).

I have EFI now, but I do see a little bit of accumulation on the top of the TB, and the top of the butterflies if I don't clean it, and drive it when it's dirty.
