First I apologize for my rough around the edges comment. I didn't mean it to be nasty.
It might be fun and some might call it a sport, but it really makes ALL motor sports look like a bunch of 16...

Why 215's on a 9" wheel???

I still wonder why you are going to all of this trouble just to use a tire that is WAY to narrow for the rim you want to use? I just happened to be at Tirerack.com and looked up a 215 R-DOT tire and...

A 215 on a 9" wheel (that 245 in the pic is to narrow for the wheel.) Why not just use a 7" wheel, bolt it on and be done? Unless you just really enjoy all of the body work.

My friend Ehren designed that system for MM. It does indeed have 3 links, but it also must use a panhard rod or a watts link to center the rear end. The main item is the torque arm that controls...

I'm assuming that the car is in good condition to start out with. I don't consider getting the car into stock condition (replacing wore bushings and wasted shocks) a modification.
On my car I put...

Why does the B cam suck???

The specs I have show it to be almost identical to the A cam that seems to be well liked around here. The specs are so close that I am surprised that Volvo made an A and B cam.

Swaybars are a...

That's what I wanted to say.

I'm not real PC so almost everthing I say is a little course or terse. A few more ponies and make the chassis earn it's keep and the car will be fun.

More speed

How about forgetting about the engine mods and look at what makes the car fun to drive. Start out with good springs shocks/struts and a pair of sway bars. At 27K the bushings should be fine. Bleed...

That might be because nobody has put forward any useful thoughts (myself included) on how to make his car less slow. He probably left and went back to the nice polite b'board with thoughts of...

Dear 8 year old

Grow up or go away.
Mueller knows more about cars and just plain making stuff than you ever will.

Oversteer and boost.

Your surprised that the back end wants to pass the front end under BOOST in a corner? Any rear drive car is going to oversteer under power. Even my NA 97HP weakling will do this.

Yes - Lots

I had my B21F head shaved 0.065". I am still putting it back together so I don't know what effect it will have. I also added 3 grooves in each chamber to help with pinging.

cage

Tie it into the door sills (you can make a box for this) for the main hoop and the front legs, just welding a big plate to the thin floor is less than useless - if you roll the car the main hoop will...

It is an 81 GLT (still passes smog BTW) and an 80 DL that has 108K - I got it from the original owner for $300 with a blown head gastket and ratty head.
Mueller raped the GLT for the entire...
