    Looking good as usualy Paul. Thanks for the close-up of the pipe, makes perfect sense.

    Hey for the leafs, maybe get a new main leaf made up that has the front eye rolled the opposite way. This is what i am going to do and bonus! It changes the roll center.

    This thread delivers erections. nice work, all of it. I'm very curious to see what kind of hp you make.

    So the stacks were just shortened for clearance issues, not for top end?

    What main jets are you using? Are you using an msd box?

    Main circiut is
    155 main jet
    175 air corector
    F16 e tube
    Idle jet is 50f9
    Pump jet 150 I think
    best guess for now I guess, till I get it dynoed. I have a few bigger and smaller mains and air corectors to play with.
    I'm running 40mm chokes in the 45's, and I have some 38mm chokes as well if need be.

    No MSD box, just the old 2t dist, it has mechanical advance, Someday I will do a megajolt edis ignition system, but for now this works.

    Well....
    I just came in from the garage.
    This car sounds scary!
    Its alive! and I am stoked!
    I will try to get video, I have a camera just need to figure out how to host the vids.
    Did what Sunray said, ran it for 20 minutes between 2-3000 rpm, let stand for 5 minutes, run for 10 minutes between 2-3000 rpm, let stand for 5 and then drain the oil.
    I got the crabs sorted I think, Idle was super rich, got it dialed down so the tail pipe dosnt make my eyes hurt. Timing set at 14* btdc at 1200 rpm, spark plug gap is at .042", running the stock champion RN11YC4's for now.
    SHould I get colder plugs?
    I still need to do all the tests to detrmine if the air corectors are right size, find out when the main circuit comes in, ect.
    But I am pretty excited, this is my first REAL engine build, not just a re-ring and bearing, but actually using aftermarket parts.
    It sounds dangerous at idle!
    I'm afraid!

    Nice work Paul.

    3tc is my fav 4cyl motor at idle, it's ****ing wicked. Once you have things running perfect try playing with timing, you can really advance the timing a lot on the 3tc. Why do you want to run colder plugs?

    No gym for home, work out floor with 30, but is it for 20 like 30 lb when you no lift it to be for men, for 30 lbs instead? or half is 10 for 20 pounds?

    Haha! thanks Chris.
    I am stoked, Old Rolla's came by today and had a listen.
    Still need to recheck the valve lash, jsut to make sure after the run in process.
    Warning to viewers! turn down the volume when the camera goes to the rear of the car, it gets loud when I put the camera up to the tail pipe.
    Fill up the diff, relocate battery/install kill switch, make tow hooks work, thinking about a new throttle linkage/cable setup, new harnesses(mine expired) then drive!

    It sure seems to have a nice responsive resolution for using 40mm chokes. Did you port the intake side out that far??
