I DOOOO know that the gts rear end has a bunch of options for gear sets ( I have a 4.77 gear set lying ar...

Re: draw through turbo 4age!

the FPR makes sense if you hook it up to the manifold and can have it send more fuel to the carb under boost. Then you wouldn't need EFI and would just have to manually tune the carb and FPR. Here is a nice write up on how the boost reference FPR works. http://fuelab.com/11-boost-reference-fuel-pre...

Re: draw through turbo 4age!

Well first thing I would do would be to get an AFR gauge. Then from there you can see what your fuel requirements would be then tune the carb from there. Since you are not running efi I'd imagine you'd have to run the carbs rich. The problem would be when the turbo kicks in it would probably lean o...

Re: head work or bottom end?

Headwork! Just know the limitations of the bottom end. No sense in building a top end to destroy the bottom end. Typically, the bottom end can handle 9000rpm with the weak link being the oil pump.

Re: head work or bottom end?

With the 272 cams I'd kick the limit to 8500. IF you were to go the other way, block, I'd say put the funds into a 7A block and build a 7AGE. Not as rev happy but the torque increase is worth it. If you were to go this direction a light flywheel and rods will help with the "sluggishness" ...
