Howdy Folks

Just want to introduce myself. My name is Mac and I have a 65 2dr hardtop. She runs a 383 sb , TH350 and 4.11 gears.
Looking forward to learning, teaching and helping!!

Welcome to the site! YES, we will need to see pictures of her.

Don't listen to me, what do I know? I've only been doing this for 30 years.

Another 383 Must pull pretty quick with those 4.11 gears. I have a 383 in my 64, and I like it.

Hey guys with the 383s what are you running headers, full or shorty or manifolds? if shortys any problems with clearance by the starter? Im thinkin I might have to get a mini starter, just mocked my shorty block huggers up today and its looking pretty tight...

I am using 2.5 inch rams horns on mine. But I am trying to keep things looking like a stock 327. The 2.5 inch manifolds are a big improvement over the old "2 inch" manifolds. I could really feel the difference while driving.




The casual observer would not suspect all the extra cubes in there

Thanks for the welcome. I'll post some pics soon.

I've run her a few times(3-4) and so far she runs 13.64 @ 99. She needs some more tuning, the carb isn't right and I'm not convinced the valves aren't a little tight.

Thanks again folks!!!

Cool. I am hoping to get my 64 into the 13's, but it may be a bit hard with all the stock appearance things I have to work around.

I like the stock look. I wish I had thought of that. Good luck with your goals, it shouldn't be to hard.
