Red manifolds and restricted exhaust



My 2 cents....

My 86 SVO heated the manifold red one time, and after checking timing and
all sorts of fun things, I traced the problem to a faulty PCV valve which
was leaning the engine out.  Gotta love those cheap fixes....

Also, my friend Jon races a 79 Mustang w/ 88 TC motor (11.60s in the 1/4)
and finds that no exhaust is the way to go for best times at the drag
strip.  

Anyway, I hope to see some SVOs at the MMFF Gateway Rumble here in St.
Louis this weekend.  Take it easy.
