Re: carb to hood pans

yes... definitely want the wire retardant foam. the moroso kit is the kind of deal i'm looking for/ want to make, but it's not wide enough. i am running a 14x4 round and have a good top for it. the opening is about 19x19, so if thick foam, overall it would be something like 22x22".

Re: Anyone know the rates for rear chevelle moroso trick spr

Mike, thanks again... I kinda suspected that was how the length and rate was playing into it. I was just surprised at some of the super stiff springs afco listed, and thought, naaawww... I'm missing something. Apparently not. Used to play with some auto cross stuff, so I'm familiar with what spring ...

Re: Anyone know the rates for rear chevelle moroso trick spr

Mike, do you know the front dimensions as well? Just seeing the stock size for the 64-72 chevelle 8x9.5" fronts as the picture a couple posts ago, with enormous spring rates. Are the ones I want for storing more energy, longer by chance? I see some 5x11's in the 200# range...but they are listed for ...

Re: Anyone know the rates for rear chevelle moroso trick spr

Put the car on some corner scales and get the actual weights so you can buy the correct spring rate for your needs. AFCO offers several rates of springs and I would bet they have a set for you. Are you talking about the Moroso rear springs that have different rates for each side? Those make for a v...

I was wondering if anyone new what the left and right side, rear, rates were for those, and maybe i could order a better spring from...
