    Re: Strut mounts

    That's the thing, it's the rubber used that doesn't last long. Like I mentioned, the car sits on its wheels most of the time and the rubber becomes concave then stuff starts knocking.

    Re: Is it worth it?

    Personally I would stick with the fast burn head, the GLHS stage 2 LM is called for that head. G head require more timing down low and you will loose compression as well. EVEN MAYBE PURCHASE SOME +1...

    Re: Clutch recommendations

    That was done on purpose, I threw some NOs at it to see how it reacted with the newer engine. I didnít want to shock it at too low an rpm so I waited until just over 4000 rpm and mashed the pedal.

    I used to break the stock pistons quite frequently, maybe once a season. I would simply buy four new pistons and a set of rings, give the bores a quick hone, reassemble and back on the road.

    When you say it falls n its face, does it miss fire? If it does, tighten the plug gap.
    If no miss fire, verify fuel pressure as it falls off, see if it drops causing a lack of fuel?
