    Intake swap

    I should have mentioned we're working on a '63 SS w a stock 409 / 340 hp intake and 4GC Rochester carb. Living at 8000 ft. elevation and driving down to 5000 ft. elevation is getting to be a real pain keeping it running consistent, and I'm starting to think changing to an EFI will be the only...

    1961 Impala @ B.J.

    It's of my opinion (and experience), that the auction houses go by the descriptions of the vehicle that the owner states on the consignment form, and leaves it at that. They do not want any responsibility or liability for anything what-so-ever, and state that in their consignments really fine...
