I now have 3500 miles on my Korman Stage Three

I'm very happy with what Ray did 

the car runs strong and quite, pulls like no other 02 and when necessary Idils even with the A/C on.

Wow! Very beautiful. I'd love to drive a car with a Korman motor. I always hear good things.

 

Glad you are enjoying it. Your car is one of the great ones.

Awesome, I bet it's a blast!!! Put some hose-clamps on those fuel lines. You wouldn't want an accident in that engine compartment.

 

Those aren't fuel lines...thats a catch can for the crankcase vent.  Cool looking system.

Hose clamps ? You must mean the hoses on the valve cover vent

The nuts securing the front carb are loose in that picture.  But maybe you were doing some work?

Good spot!  Additionally, if those are nylon lock nuts, the lock washers are superfluous.  :ph34r:

 

Beautiful engine bay, though.  Very nice.

Looks great and I bet it goes nicely.  The filters look somewhat restrictive.  Maybe longer curved trumpets and some sock filters will improve it

The space between carbs and head is

by design. There is a neoprene spacer

all set up to compensate for engine

vibes.

this engine was done at Korman Motorsports and spec'd by Ray Korman.

 

1. It's fast

2. It's smooth 

3. Idles with A/C on

the nicest 2002 I've ever driven

We are referring to the nuts which hold the carbs to the manifold.  In the last picture, they are certainly not tightened down.

I like the aluminum radiator that was painted black.  It blends nicely.


It appears that you are running an 'Ignitor' of some sort, but I am confused by the use of an external resistor with a blue coil.

I thought all blue coils had internal resistors, which provide the required 3 ohms of resistance.

Is that resistor necessary?

No trumpets will not improve this set up

Yes, I understand but, Ray Korman explained to me that is intentional.

Each  of those nuts are similarly 

(not tight)
