  1. Brew - Did you gain any mpg over running a carb, and if so, how much more?
  2. The only negatives I can see with going with EFI is, initial cost, and what would a person do if the EFI ECU on the throttle body dies. Your motor won't run with a dead ECU and you can't just buy it at the auto parts store.
  3. I'm debating getting a Holley Sniper EFI system or just getting a brand new carb to put on my BB 416 ci engine. A 2,500 rpm stall converter is going in the trans, and I will be running the Lunati Voodoo 268/276 cam kit, big long tube headers, dual plane Edelbrock intake, HEI, compression will be around 9.5:1, and the car has 2.73 gears with the factory posi. If I run a 750+ cfm carb, should I run vac secondaries or mechanical due to the stall converter? Anyone on here run a Holley Sniper 800 cfm setup on their big block, and if so have you had any issues with it? What carb are you guys running on your big block with an auto trans, besides a quadrajet carb? Thanks for your input! Doug
  4. He sent me some other pics of it, and it's definitely a 71/72 fender. I told him to edit his post to declare the years it fits, and to post more pics of both sides of it for a faster sale.
  5. Here is the link to it on Summit Racing; https://www.summitracing.com/parts/amd-301-scoop-1 Here's my scoop just sitting on my stock hood.
  6. Steve, I have that same very AMD 301-scoop-1 hood scoop that I'm not going to use now. It's just been sitting on the roof of my Monte Carlo in my shop. If you want I can take some pictures of it and post it for you. It will be cheaper than the $189 and change that Summit Racing is showing for the price of it now.
  7. I just bought a brand new steel Goodmark cowl hood. The hood is 70" in length, and length of the scoop is 42", which leaves 28" of hood in the front. I think it will look really good when my car gets painted soon. I just got the hood transferred to my car this evening. I bought it from Carid and it was $768 plus shipping.
  8. Great looking Monte!! I'm hoping to get my 72 painted within the next month. It's only been 4 years and 2 months since I brought it home. My body shop guy has a regular job and then works on it when he has time, but since I already paid him 4 yrs ago to paint my car, I need to crack the whip on him more now to get it done.
  9. Great job on cleaning up that hood Steve!!! I found a steel cowl hood for my Monte for $903 shipped. Then I had to order the outer door assembly and the inner door kit for it. I figure that I will spend the time later on with my original hood to get it where it needs to be, but for now I'm trying to get my Monte painted ASAP.
  10. I'm looking for a regular straight non-rusty hood for my 72 or a cowl induction hood. My hood needs some body work and and it has some surface rust on the underside by the support braces. I don't want to pay $1k for a cowl Monte hood when the Chevelle cowl hoods are seen at $300+ for a steel hood. Damn vendors are just raping us for the aftermarket Monte hoods with their prices being triple of the Chevelle hoods. Please let me know if you have something. Thanks!
  11. I will be planning on attending my first Monte Carlo meet ever at this 2022 Western Meet.
  12. Rob, Wishing you a full recovery! It sounds like you're on the mend and will be back in better condition than before you had surgery.
