    New guy here from Las Vegas. I was looking for a forum where I could get information, tips, advice for the motor I'm building and thought this would be a good place. I've been away from the carb world for a long time, but for the car I'm building I wanted to go old school. I have a 1992 Caprice Wagon, I'm putting a 454 out of a 71 Chevelle, it has a two bolt main, and bored .30 over in the car. I also have an Edelbrock TR2X tunnel ram for dual carbs, which I plan on using Holley 650's. I'm in the process of putting together the parts for the engine build, heads (it came with 396 cast iron heads, but I'll go with aftermarket aluminum heads), cam, pistons, crank... Anyway, thought when I have questions this would be a good place to search for answers and/or ask guys that know the old school motor setups.

    Thanks!!! I have a 96' Impala SS I've built through the years. This gives me a different direction.
