Kinda new to this stuff, any help greatful.
I have a 1980 trans am, but i put a chevy 355 in place of the 301. I'm running a edelbrock 3701 intake, 9635 carter 625 electric choke carb, stock heads, headers, 3 inch flowmaster exhaust and a stock RV cam ( .420 lift intake &.443 lift exhaust, duration is 204 degrees at .050 lift intake & 214 degrees at.050 lift exhaust). Auto trans and stock converter. I never got a diagram on how to install the vacuum lines on the carter carb. It would have been easy if I was just replacing the carb, but I scraped all the pontiac stuff for chevy. could any one help me with the proper method of connecting the vacuum lines?(egr,pcv, brake,dist, etc) The motor runs like it has a vacuum leak. Also, is a 3 inch exhaust too much for my application?
Thanks to all. Looks like an awesome site for chevy owners!
