I have a 350 bored over .020, hypereutectic 9.1:1 pistons, 272 RV cam, stock heads, Edelbrock performer intake, recently rebuilt Edelbrock 750cfm #1407(would prefer a 600cfm)in my 83 Z. The engine currently has 2,800 miles on it. In the mornings it fires up on the first crank, after it gets hot and I shut it off for about five minutes it takes a couple cranks for it to start. If I shut it off and start it immediately it fires right up. Whats going on here?? Someone told me that it could be gas evaporating from my intake, I don't think so cuz it starts right up in the mornings without giving it gas. Just so you know, this problem was there before I rebuilt my carb. I'm also burning about a quart of oil every 700 to 800 miles. Whats going on???
