    SBC in '75 Firebird

    Hello I'm in the middle of swapping a SBC in my '75 Firebird and I'm just wondering about the fuel line situation. The return line needs to be moved to the passenger side since it runs along the driver side on a Pontiac. Are the sending units/tanks for both Firebird and Camaro the same? If so I...

    The Fireturd, a '78 Twin Turbo disaster

    My personal project of the last three years, the Fireturd. It's packing an 5.3L L59, Megasquirt fuel injection, twin Chinese turbos, and is packed full of bad ideas and big dreams. It's licensed and on the road but isn't done and may never be. Of minor interest--I fit the engine with stock...
