from the lowbugget.com website

"if you need to drop a jet size, you could go up in venturie to free up some hidden horse power.
If Your motor is larger than  1600cc, the stock 28 mm venturie  is restricting your motors proformance.
All the Kadron's come with a 40mm throttle bodies and  only 28mm venturies out of the box new or used.
This setup works great on small displacement, slow air speed motors. ( like the stock cam 1600cc )
But if your motor has more compression,  a performance cam, larger in  displacement or ported heads
take advantage of changing the venturies.
28.0 (stock)  30.0  31.0  32.0  and larger are available"

sounds like fun to me, the look of a small simple set up but the performance i am looking for.
The worst performance mod is whatever you're limited to because you convinced yourself (or others) that anything bigger or faster was too extreme for a street car.

so i was drivin the car with the fam" in the car and went over some of those "speed humps"....i was just going over it in a slow manner when slam and grind happened as we crested the mound it went away.

well here comes the next one so we'll go a little slower this time.  it went over with the same results slam'n'grind.  at this point my wife was irritated because it was happening just below her feet.  when we got near our destination there was one more in our way and this time i pretty much stoped and put into 1st gaer and just creeped over it with no problems.

when we all piled out of the car i looked and sure enough the tow hook was the culprit.  as i have been drivin my car the new suspension has been settling and as a result it is now low enough to drive the tow hook into the speed bumps.

it is time to adjust the hool with the floor jack.

there is a little tow hook under the car and its to low.  Sooo i will put the jack under it and lift the car by the hook (simple loop of round rod) and adjust its position in realation to the ground by force. :wink:

well ihave been out in the garage now for the last three nap times or about six hours and have finishsed the port matching of my new kadron manifolds to my existing heads gaskets.

ahhh crrrap i started this post way to late and now have to enjoy some of Cheveys finest chicken queadillas.  off to dinner with my brother and sister in law.  and then off to see a rock cocert with just my brother, it is his guitar teacher and his band Wester Ariel at Berbati's pan.

well i just got back from the show, great as usual.  cheveys was also good and does not disapoint.


back to subject at hand, so have finished cleaning up all the casting process issues i could see with the manifolds top and bottom.  or on the head side and carb side.  i ground out the ridges where the flat flange area connects to the intake pipe on all four ports and under the carb pad where it goesdown and suddenly widens out.  the air fuel mixture doesnt like to turn corners like that so every thing has nice smooth transitions now. 

i also didnt like the cast in EMPI on the side of the manifolds and erased that little pock mark while i was at it.  quick work with a 4" grinder and a file to smooth it out.

to finish it off i have painted them both in GM satin black and they look great. 

i also scrubbed off the pound of scounge from the air cleaners and they are shiny again.  the base plates were painted some funky green with bright yellow underneath that.  VHT make some of the slickest paint remover i have used called Strip Fast.  by the time i had covered the first one in it, it had already started to bubble and lift the old paint.  i took the newly stripped parts into the garage and proceeded to shine their dull finishes into a lovely shiny surface.  i had already done the lids and then went onto the filter screens.  when i am done the only things in the engine compartment that will be shiny  will be the air cleaners.  i am going to spray the body of my distibutor in the same satin black as well as everything else on the top side except the breather box i got from Kev that i just rembered i have.  the under side will also have some aluminum valve covers that match the box. 

i cant wait to get it back togther and ready to go.
