        Yeah, last night I started looking for some of the stuff I'd read about this, and my own short attention span kicked in. While I was looking for one of David Vizard's books that I'm sure has something on it, I ended up picking up another book and fell asleep reading that one, lol. The end result so far is that changing the base worked for me, but I'm not really sure why, lol.

                I'll bet he's not telling us that luggage rack is good for -.10 seconds compared to the spoiler. LOL

                  I tune with the filter in place and the trans in drive. That was BG recommendation

                    BG never tuned those carbs on American Hot Rod that way. I think he's lying to you, T.

                      Barry Grant? It's in the Holley tuning book. Why wouldn't you want to tune your carb the way you run it?

                        Yes. Barry Grant was always on American Hot Rod tuning carbs for Floyd Cotterpin. Lol

                          Id like to see that and then ask that very question to him. Maybe those stupid ****ing shirts BC wore annoyed BG so he was taking it out on him with a shitty tune.

                              That's a good one Rick, lol. I really don't know what difference there is from testing - not putting a spoiler on my car to find out. I may unbolt the rack some day at the track to see if there's any noticeable difference in the numbers from the difference in the drag, who knows?

                                Yeah, I've seen that recommendation in a few places too. Trouble with a drop base cleaner is you can't really do that.
