you go run up against a decently modded "little 5.0" the little 302 is one badass motor i have a friend running 12s,YES 12s! witha few decent mods,head work,cam and intake,and the usual little bolt on crap,low-mid 12s all motor. spanked my transam by about 5 car lengths70sChevys said:Good one Robert!

There are plenty of kids out there in stock 5.0's bowing up against those of us in modified classics on residential streets...one set of flowmasters and they think they're hot stuff.70sChevys said:you go run up against a decently modded "little 5.0" the little 302 is one badass motor i have a friend running 12s,YES 12s! witha few decent mods,head work,cam and intake,and the usual little bolt on crap,low-mid 12s all motor. spanked my transam by about 5 car lengths
Actually the 4.6 isn't that great of a motor when in stock form.
I'd much rather have the Mustang...the ricers are the second silliest trend there is. They all sound like fartin' bumble bees.Will7128301 said:Hey 70sChevys what do you think is worse those stock billy bad azz 5.0 with jusT flowmaster or the Rice Burners with the ugly tri-wing spoilers and the coffee can exhaust?
On a side note:
Maybe this is just me but my 1983 Elky 305 driving that compared to my old 1992 dodge 318 V-8 the Elky blows it away..... what gives I learn a lot about cars the inner works but i haven't quite got there what makes the 305 better than the dodge? better gear ratio? I am curious, I seek wisdom....
You mean after cat dual tailpipes (no one has made true duals in any car under $40k since the advent of catalytic converters)...you're right about the sound, it is better on the 4.6 Ford motor.ElkyPete said:Ford produces cars with good sounding Dual Exhausts from factory.
Very well said!SKULL said:Just Cruz'n down the road in my 59' Elky, even if it only had a 6 Cyc., which it has a 350...will put a SMILE on my face every time...weather it goes 200 M.P.H. or "Put Put Put"...My Elky is where it's at!!!
Here it is: From 442.com's pages on the 442 models...they had models that weren't real 442's from 1979 til 1991...see this page for details:ElkyPete said:No I can't swear that GM didn't put dual exhausts on cars after the catalytic converters came out. I think that the 442 Olds were some of the last.
That car was not a "real" 442 if it didn't have dual exhausts, no matter what GM says. The 442 was "4 in the floor, 4 barrel Carburetor and 2 exhaust pipes." That was the original swing on that car. I think the original "Chevy Girl" for that car was Marry Tyler Moore. She gave the speech above
