    Default Old member new build

    So after taking a few years off after selling the last car. I ended up buying a car I helped build about 8 years ago. It's a 93 z28 a4 car it was stripped down, 3600 stall full bolt ons car. It was mostly used to just beat up on cars on the street. Well I found out it was sitting outside of his body shop for 5 years or so. I offered 1k bucks and came to get it. Fuel was nasty pump was dead and trans was tired. Car has 109k on it and was beat on pretty bad. I put a new pump, gas fresh oil and had fun with it around the neighborhood. While helping a buddy build his lt1 I scored his old trans it was a 4l60e and his old harness and pcm which is a 94 car. I swapped the car over and enjoyed it a little more I swapped ln my old cc306 cam which is about 12 years old or more and shortly after it spun number one rod bearing. At that point ADHD kicked in to the max. I ordered wiseco +5cc dome stock bore pistons, light eagle forged rods and got a used stock crank. Had the short block assembled for a year as I got parts in and pulled all different directions. I ended up with tfs195s ported to 215cc/80cc, a 255/263 688/688 107lsa cam LE grind cam. Comp mechanical roller lifters .105 wall push rods and comp 1.6 roller rockers, Howard's double roller timing set, msd digital 6+ ignition set up, a Wilson profiler sbc intake, pro system 830cfm carb. Ended up swapping to a t56 with a spec 3+ full face disk and billet steel flywheel. Exhaust is stainless x pipe and turn downs. Car is back to running and driving working on tuning the carb at this point. Next up is building a 8.8 ranger housing rear. Just finished painting the car white base coat clear coat garage job. Plans for the car is local driver but mostly a goal of 10.50s on motor is set and I'd like to see 9s out of it on a 200 plate. Pics coming soon just wanted to start a thread.

    Rpm limits of stock or 24x, and ms3pro or similar management is to damn expensive. Still might go to holley efi if I cant get this carb business. Car was only intended to go wot for 1/4 mile and that's it. Life distractions made it a street car.

    @zooguy did a pretty successful carbd N20 build. I get it for sure. I was gonna do it with the vette I had, but sold the car instead.

    I definitely didn't want to go carb I thought it would be cheaper. Between the 800 dollar carb fuel system and ignition system it definitely didn't end up being cheaper. Its nice and simple tho when its right.
