Re: valve cover clearance 427 BB
No, the motor hasn't been run yet. And yeah, I'm surprised he didn't see that also. Seems like everytime I trust someone to make a decision that I should be making, it bites me in the ***.
So I'm having the torque converter built in redding cal. locally. A 28-3000 stall. They can do it for $450. VS $550+ for others. He's trying to convince me that a 10" converter will perform better that a normal size converter of the same stall speed. Wouldn't the 10" produce more heat? It's a street car, I'm not racing it. Another decision I'm worried about leaving to someone else.
