Got my exhaust welded up but still have a leak at #4 because of a broken stud. It broke after the engine was in so it's going to be a pain to fix. I had a friend come over today to tune it and I'm really impressed.
He had me take the car in front of the house and punch it. I left twin 10 foot black marks on the road and went back to the driveway. Popped the hood and he switched the vacuum line to the other port and the car ran better. Rev it and the backfire is almost gone.
He adjusted the AF and idle, smelled the exhaust and tweaked the AF a little more.
Next he played with the timing, then back to AF and idle.
Next he had me rev it up to 2000-2500 and repeated timing, and AF. Back to idle and he tweaked it a little more.
Then he had me gun it in front of the house again. This time, 30 feet of twin black marks in a nice S shape.
He checked everything over again and he was done.
No more backfire, and once I get the header leak fixed and the trans adjusted on Tuesday it's going to be one bada$$ car.
