This ’73 was brought in to us earlier in the week to set up the newly installed carburetor. Setting up the primaries, installing the proper jets and power valve, then setting up timing on the dyno. Now this car runs as great as it looks.

1965 Shelby Cobra Kit Car
Cobras always turn heads; in this great blue and white combo it really brings out the curves. It is a replica; however it is a very accurate one even down to the period correct gauges. Its got a modern, warmed up 5.0 powerplant with an electronic engine management system with a 5-speed manual behind it. Awaiting a Stage II clutch and upgraded flywheel.

1969 Camaro convertible hot start repairs
Recently finishing restoration; this beautiful ’69 Camaro came to us with issues involving hot starting. Ice cold it fired right up like a brand new car. Investigating the cause we found there was no spacer between the intake and carb; allowing the heat to transfer directly to the carb and essentially boiling the fuel. Some insulated lines and a spacer will have this beauty ready for the cruise in season.
Mustang rear gear upgrade
Are you looking to get more low end grunt off the line and lower ET’s at the same time? Then look no further than installing a set of steeper gears in your car. This upgrade alone makes any car feel substantially more powerful – helping launch the car off the line and get up to speed quicker. Speedometer recalibration via a handheld tuning device is required for an accurate speedometer reading; so many opt for a performance tune at this time. This manual V-6 Mustang is getting upgraded to 3.73’s; the recommended ratio for a 5 speed car.
Forced induction must-haves
Are you considering forced induction on your ride? Here are two necessities. A good boost gauge; like any other reliable gauge, can alert you of any issues before they become catastrophic as well as let you monitor whats happening under that hood. Check out this trick install on a Mustang GT.
Another common mistake in boosted cars is running out of fuel pump. That truly means when the pump is at 100% it still isn’t enough for the car and it will go lean. A lean car makes for terrible results – in most cases a ventilated block once a rod gets thrown. One great economical and proven fix is a boost-a-pump; shown below in a Mustang. It increases the voltage signal allowing the pump to perform at an even better performance rate.
Are you getting ready to bring us your car to get dyno tuned? Don’t forget to check the basic “tune up” parts. Neglected or unmaintained items such as a clogged fuel filter, fouled spark plugs, dirty air filter, or a burned plug wire can severely affect a car’s performance and our ability to get the most power out of your vehicle to meet your needs. But don’t worry, we are able to facilitate all maintenance items such as these and more. Call for details.
