Whew!! I'm glad that was worked out. I know both these guys, Jeff personally and Patrick through his great carb work. I hated to see a problem develop.
Jeff is one of my best friends and he has done a lot for ASedan over the years. Jeff ran my backup engine at the 08 Runoffs and I included the ProSystems carb, that had been set up and dyno'd on that engine. It is an excellent carburetor and well worth the money for power and smoothness. I think the way to go, especially for budget racers, is to send them a used carb, and let them tune it up.
I haven't tried the new metering blocks, but the carb in question is back at ProSystems for the upgrade.

Default Handled.

I thank you for the compliments Mr. Kopp and appreciate that fact that you are man enough to realize you may have mistyped your response.

Something we all are guilty of at some point in time.

Our conversation was actually very pleasant and we are now in full agreement. Basically: "Aftermarket companies are appreciated by many, but may only be needed by some".

With that in mind: I will rescind my earlier comments and state...I now agree.

The advertising banner for the website is on its way.

Its been great doing business with you.

He's never been a duck to me, either. A dork, now that's another topic.

Whew...crisis averted there.

Yeah...I forget which direction it occurred in, but my car would die under hard cornering. Changing the floats made a big difference. Now if only the fuel pump would keep up...

See that Jeff and Patrick,

This is what I love about this class, workin it out...

All I know about the Kopper, is that he was handing out free parts for my T1 car at the 05 runoffs. Remember that Jeff, $100 dollar gift certificate in Superior parts for showing up. Good man. I'll be coming to you after I blow the current LS1 up.

Now, Ahem, what the F*&%! is a Carb? Isn't that some ridiculous regulatory board in California?

Oh ya Evan, I remember. Those were the good old days. Maybe again someday I hope.

New LS1 crate engines are cheap now. It's almost ridiculous. You might as will throw an LS6 in it though because at your current weight you still won't have a shot at the top six with the HP these alum head motors are making.
