    I had to put a resistor on the tach wire and set the tach to 8cyl mode to get it to work right. I had to put air shocks on the rear to keep the tires from rubbing when taking off hard. I also adjusted the rear brakes to help the pedal...now to clean it all up and drive it.

    Beautiful car and awesome drivetrain. Read through the thread twice now. Looks great, runs great. From what i notice, you're missing that suspension, brakeing, and steering upgrade. With all that newfound power, i can only wonder how long before you start tearing apart again, but i'll be looking forward to the posts.

    Bought a "done" 70 RS couple months ago, and knew from the start i wanted to upgrade the suspension, brakes and steering. Now thinking maybe a 5 or 6 speed Tremec w/ a stiffer posi rear. I want to decide everything i want to do now, before i start changing. Has a 383 engine. Not sure exactly whats in it though. Runs good, starts right up. Would love to go the LS route ( can hear my son saying, yes, yes, yes), but i don't want to put a ton of money in it. Building a '34 Chevy coupe, and still need paint and interior for that.

    Where did you get that cold air kit? I'm thinking it would be a good idea to put one in my 71 along with the LS7 I'm planning on installing.

    I've already got a project thread going, Project Girasol. I hope to be picking up the engine and transmission for it when I get back to the US in a week or so. Not much to see right now but there are a few pictures.
