Placing a 400 Turbo behind a new style 6.0L engine could be the "Bombardier Beast" of all time.

Both the 318 and 350 are good choices, I have them in a hard working environment. Staying with the past is always an option when doing some of your own work on the machine. In saying that, my neighbor installed the Holley Sniper Kit on his Chrysler 360. Says it works well. Car club enthusiasts around home are also moving to the Edelbrock AVS2, a regular carburetor with a new style fuel delivery. Both have excellent professional videos to watch. Nothing wrong with a new fuel injected motor either. Good Luck !

Opening move, go with a fresh battery to see if it starts. Check the fluid levels in the radiator and oil pan first. Good Luck

General Discussion / New Alpine Tire
« on: March 03, 2013, 03:39:40 pm »
Just installed the first one on a Narrow Gauge. Clearly a more vertical profile, this tire does not touch the inside edge of the track. Centres easily in the cleat cup.
There is 3/8"s to 1/2" clearance on both sides. All the other Dunlops appear to rubbing slightly.
Rated at 70 psi, Dunlops are rated at 35 psi and is usually where I run them.
I think a less jarring softer ride in loaded conditions, they do need regular air pressure checks.
I have the new rim, waiting on an excluder retrofit.
