    Installed my new mirrors ,painted my door handles and detailed it a little . Right now I have a cheap Thrush Hush turbo muffler dumping in front of the passenger rear tire...its W A Y too loud ...I ordered a Magnaflow 18 x 7 inch round straight through to quiet it down and I am switching to a full length factory 3" tail pipe dumping in the stock location behind the rear tire to quiet it down ...I have owned that particular Magnaflow before and was shocked at how quiet it was especially at 70 mph - no cab drone but sounds throaty at idle . Also today I am installling an adapter to run my factory oil pressure gage over the mechanical one I have installed under the dash . I threw on some new Bosch wiper blades too which by the way are on sale 2 for 1 right now at Oreillys .

    Getting around to tweaking the smaller bugs out of this combo. First time I have used one of these Barry Grant Street Demon 625's . I noticed a slight accelerator pump stumble on take off . I moved the accelertor pump arm to hole number one like they suggest but it didnt fix it . It has a single .031 accelerator pump squirter in it from the factory. Its funky looking and is a rectangular looking block pump nozzle . The only ones I had laying around were the old school Holley squirters that are round and have the 2 mini brass nozzles sticking out of them . So I threw an .037 in it with the longer hollow mounting screw (it fit fine) and it still didnt fix it but made it ever so slightly better . I had an .045 squirter laying around from my Buick 462 drag car days ....so I threw it in and it cleaned up the stumble nicely. In the Barry Grant instructions it mentions Air Gap intakes might need more pump shot I guess they were right . FWIW.
