Re: Pick the "Collective Brain" of the site :)

I have offset Harland Sharps on my AFR's that have a .050" offset but on my pro-1's i had regular (no offset) pro magnum rockers,I think the valve in the pro-1's is moved .030" but you may want to check that with Dart or just check with Harland Sharp for there recommendations on that head,if you are...

Re: installing subframe connectors

I think the 1 5/8" tube is a much better idea but it looks like you are wanting to use the factory rear which has axles about the size of a quarter in the spline area which will probably not last long and the torque arm will break the tranny case if that is not changed also....remember a Vega only h...

Re: what size tubing for down bars on 8.50 MS cage?

I just installed a 12 point cage that was bought from jegs and those bars that come in the kit were 1 1/4",contrary to what alot of people think the chassis instector only cares about the tubing that protects the driver,our chassis inspector said if it is in front of the a-pillar or behind the main ...

Re: installing subframe connectors

I think for frame connectors that i would put them in with the drivetrain in the car,as any stress that the drivetrain adds to the chassis is "normal" for it.I would level the body front to back and side to side with it on jackstands,i would not put them in with the car sitting on a lift where it is...

Re: 9.99 Cert

Yes you did but you also said " not having a net dident keep them from getting stickers" and it wouldnt as the chassis inspector that gives out the stickers does not look at window nets!

Re: Intake Manifold Water Lines

I use them on my SBC but it is a street car and yes they work well,I was told that the tubes let the water that is "trapped" in the rear of the block escape to be cooled [iImagemg][/img]

Re: 9.99 Cert

Hey guys, This thread seems to be going in two directions at once! The chassis inspector for nhra that certifies the "chassis" or rollcage could care less if the chassis has a window net,or a trans shield, or a driveshaft loop, the only thing he is concerned with is the tube thickness, bar location,...

Re: LT1 OR LS1

I think the biggest drawback to the lt-1 is the lack of a good cylinder head for it...well that and the optispark or whatever it is called,it is not in a good spot! If I was going to put a supercharger on it and run it on the street than I would leave the lt-1 in it even with the weaker head the sup...
