Darlingchip and Backwoodsboy's winter brat project *pictures* dialup = go fix dinner

Recommended Posts

With the lack of snow this past weekend, we decided to start a spring project a little early.

 

Nothing warms the hearts of USMB board members, like rednecks stripping out a brat for a fresh EJ swap... so here are some pics of last Saturday.

 

More to come as the fun progresses. :grin:

Well I am hoping that the more miles I put on him the cheaper he will get. So far he is really expensive at the moment.

 

As for the backfiring.....well I am hoping it will work itself out but I do like the extra boost.

 

I don't think he came with the owner manual....or is he hiding it on me:rolleyes:

Just figure out a methane "collector" under the seat and run a 1/8" tube to a vaccum port on the intake manifold - boost at will (consumption of beans, beer and pork can help you gain additional boost, by the way).

 

Where in NY are ya from? My wife grew up in Gouverneur NY (about 100 miles North of Syracuse) ...
