I ordered the Stebro for my car last week. I decided against ANSA because I wanted stainless. Dan said he would throw in a couple of extra loose tabs just in case but thought the system for my car should fit pretty close.

Interesting point about a different chassis. Both bumpers look to be mounted too low also.

On both the 250 and 330 engines I have always used the choke to start the car. I leave the choke on for high idle for awhile before I take off. I think the reason some people advise against using the choke is in case it does not shut off completely when you close the lever. You don't want a gassier ...

I think that was a red GTE with yellow wheels that had been used in some vintage racing. It really didn't look that bad.

I received my foil today and it is great. Sometimes these small details really make a difference and I am really excited about this. My wife doesn't understand.

Way back when I had a GTE that would do exactly the same thing in stop and go traffic and hot weather. I had to always run with the electric fuel pump on and would not have problems then. Maybe you are already doing this. It does sound like a fuel issue though.

It is important to check the cross pipe hoses between the tanks. I had one break apart in my hand when starting to remove the tanks from the trunk.

If you are talking about the ribbed foil like material on the lower outside corners of the seats I have been looking for this for some time. I have tried hobby shops and also done internet searches with no luck. If you find this material count me in. I am assuming that it is the same on the GTC as i...

And while you are stripped apart you might as well check the bearings and the rest of the bottom end. Water pump, oil pump and new clutch also. With all this done you have to do the carbs to fix the air leaks and rebuild the distributors. Now we are getting close to $25,000 but you will never have t...
