Ok, here is the deal, i got hired buy a guy who lives in my town to check out his car for him.. Here is the low down on the car, it is a 70 roadrunner, 440 six pack with a 4 spd and a 8.3/4 rear probally a 3.42 ish rear posi..he bought this car from nashville, tn two years ago off of ebay and drove it back to hendersonville, nc ..a 600 plus mile trip..the car did fine, a little under powered he said but did good..since he bought the car he has installed msd 6sl set up..its had problems starting back up..and he has replaced the carb set up with a 3 2bbl demon set up which i cant freaking stand??..all the problem is - it is under powered???..--what is initial timing suppose to be at and total timing at??--(7-8 initial and 32 total??)..the carbs seem to be dialed in and responsive..the car starts back up when hot and does run ok and will pull a hill but is 50% under powered??..advice??..the secondaries are working and coming in...my gut instinct on the car is that somebody just dropped in a motor out of a rv and put a cam in it??..the car looks and sounds great and is detailed good but the engine is not original to the car??.(1)i guess the first thing to do is check the timing(2)check the carbs to make sure they are dialed in and the throttle is adjusted ok(3)run the numbers off the block to see what it is...i wonder if someone has the timing at the timing chain 2 degrees back??..this guy has a ton of coin hanging around and he is kinda wanting me to tell him that he needs a moto,r so he can buy a 440 from indy for 8500.00 and dump it in there..he has his normal mopar guys that work on his car, he just wanted an outside honest opinion on his car from somebody that would shoot him straight..i drove up to his house sunday in my 67 chevelle ss!! oh yeah, she was looking good and wasnt under powered(lol)..hahaha..had to rub it in to the mopar guys a little!!
