I know this was posted before but here it goes. I am wondering what size metering jets you guys are using in your 2150? mine are 55e if anyone knows what that means. anyway I was told to go to the next size up to eliminate the bogging I havnt been able to eliminate. It also feels like I dont have enough power(cant even get the tires to burnout). whats the scoop? no vac leaks, rebuilt eng, rebuilt carb. its a 360,where are my balls?

I went EVERYWHERE looking for those main jets yesterday.. nobody recognized them and simply tried to push me off onto the next guy (which of course also didnt now sh** from shinola) I have an extra pair so i drilled mine out. But I still have no idea where to get those..

Shinola? as in "Doesnt know :o:o:o:o:o from shinola"? shinola was a brand of shoe polish way back when there were "shoe-shine boys" when they had theyre little booth's.. Shinola was a brand of shoe polish.. and if you were really stupid. you didnt know ":o:o:o:o:o from Shine-ola"

<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>now that we all know what shinola is and what it was used for how about anyone replying with a responce to the guestion(does your gw burn rubber). maybe a little shinola in the tank will loosen up the rubber on the tires

I won't rain on you but maybe send a little drizzle your way. My rebuilt 360 uses Edlebrock cam, manifold, carb., K&N filter, MSD ignition, absolutely no emissions (not even a cat. converter) and is tuned as fine as I can possibly get it. My heads are fresh from a 3 angle valve with all moving parts new, I run 92/93 octane and this dumps into a 2 and 3/4 inch exhaust pipe. The rear is a 3:31 with limited slip and Goodrich AT tires.

If there is anything else I can do (within reason) I don't know what it is.

My whole point is I can't get the rear to chirp...never mind smoke! Don't get me wrong, for the weight involved it will pull anything you want...it just won't pull 15's in the quarter.

Build them for comfort and bulletproof reliability. You'll be much happier. Incidentally, if you think the parts list gives me bragging rights your missing the point.

Get it on smooth pavement (as slick as possible), hold the brake with your left foot and give it gas until it "climbs" up on the rear brakes (you'll feel it), then let off the brake and stab the gas at the same time. Works every time .

This is with a stock 165,000-mile 360, stock 2150, K&N air filter and 2" dual exhaust. [edit]And 3.31 axles.[/edit]

If you don't know what all those numbers mean, you shouldn't be here.

<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>thanks for the input, you see a good friend of mine has a 69 amx with a 360. now as for weight goes granted the fsj is heavier but that baby can smoke tire up hill in third gear. the only mods done were to put in a hotter cam. its also a 4b carb. he is also wondering why I am a tortise. I dont want to drag race just have hairier balls. will larger jets solve some problems?
