  1. I've spoken to Mike Pierce several times. Based on my engine configuration he was adamant that I go with the 45s and 34mm chokes. He will jet them accordingly. Hal told me Mike used to do 2 DCOE conversions on 2002s per week back in the 80s. Not to mention, the 40s would cost me $350 more than the 45s.
  2. Do you remember the first modification you made to your car? I bought Sabine in March 1982 when I was 20 and she was 7. The very first thing I did to this tired little rust-bucket was change the steering wheel. It didn't change things much, but made her feel a tad sportier. It was a Gilles Villeneuve signature Momo. Being Canadian and a huge motorsports fan, Villeneuve was by far my favourite. Sadly, he died 2 months later. She's come a long way since then. Love every day with this car. Saturday January 18th. was Villeneuve's 70th. Birthday. RIP ❤️
  3. Street car? Track too... Need all the help I can get to keep up with my buddy's R8 GT. 😁 IMG_6724.mp4
  4. I was speaking to Hal about the ti linkage and he mentioned chokes. From what I gather, you can order the carbs without chokes and install block off plates instead. Since the choke on my 32/36 never worked and never was an issue, can I assume going without chokes should be okay?
  5. I'm going to install a tii booster, straight stacks, Uni filters and ditch my washer bottle. Installing the factory ti linkage as well. The choke on my 32/36 never worked but I never had a problem starting either. I typically don't drive my car below 50 F.
  6. Good advice, thanks. I spoke to them yesterday. The important factors for jetting is the following: Displacement, max RPM, cam, dizzy (mechanical advance with ignitor). He said my configuration falls right in the middle so jetting will be simple. I'll ask them how they set float levels and buy a synchrometer.
  7. Very sad news indeed. Being from Toronto and spending a lot of time with local rock bands, I became friend's with the band's lighting engineer and Neil's drum tech. I probably saw Rush 15 times over the years thanks to those guys. His daughter died in a car crash when she was 19 then his wife died of cancer less than a year later. That's what prompted him to go on a 55,000 mile motorcycle journey through North and Central America. He subsequently wrote a book about the trip. Hockey is pretty big here in Canada. There's no more familiar song to hockey fans than The Hockey Theme, which aired on CBC's Hockey Night in Canada. Here's Neil's version from a few years ago. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XxlEqO_MA04 RIP
  8. You've been helpful with linkage, stacks, filters etc. but my last post didn't generate any feedback. So I'll try one more time. I'm about ready to pull the trigger on the carbs. Pierce Manifolds will jet the carbs based on my engine configuration. I'm to tell them what modifications I've made so they can jet accordingly. I installed an IE 292' cam and HD valve springs when I refreshed the head last spring. Other than a new dizzy with igniter and a blue coil, the only other modification is a tii exhaust manifold and an Ansa exhaust. So for jetting, when it comes to the tii manifold, would you say it breaths closer to a stock manifold or a header? Anything else that may factor in to the equation they should be made aware of?
  9. Not sure where you’d find the code. I may have a spare radio or two with codes, somewhere...

  11. I went with a HUCO from Gower & Lee. I installed it 33 years ago and it's virtually silent. Those Germans make good stuff. 😉
  12. Interesting info. I'm looking for a ti/tii booster if anyone's can help me out.
  13. That's exactly what happened. I found the easiest fix was to buy a piece of oilite bronze bushing and make a new one that replaces the disintegrating plastic bushing. I noticed mine started to make a whining noise followed by turning slower and slower. This is what it looked like when I pulled it apart. You can see where the armature was rubbing on the inside. Unfortunately, my friend who did the machining also reassembled it before I could snap a photo of the new bushing. Should be good for another 45 year, or more.
  14. Will the belt line be sold as a full set or will you be selling individual pieces?
  15. Looks like a case of terminal snap oversteer!
