New member Hot Springs Arkansas
« on: June 06 2022, 07:15:04 PM »
Hello all, new member here and I have the good fortune to own two of these very special cars. Now, I need to learn how to make the cars perform to their fullest. My first one came from Houston and was set up by Mike Kurtz and is not stock. Very impressive performance. #2 is all stock and beautiful, but I know it can do better. I did upgrade it with a TT chip and 40 lb injectors and a Scanmaster to tune it with. I am gaining on it, but a slow go. I have been reading the Steve Woods Vortex articles and watching the 101 videos from Scooby, and they are very helpful, but I am drinking water from a fire hose. I was supposed to be retired by now and have time for focusing on this but not to be just yet. By the way Scooby, are you Dan Ackroyd?

Thanks for having me, and tried to attach a couple of pics, hope they make it!

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

Thanks for the reply Steve. Did you happen to know Mike Kurtz from your Houston days?

Sure, he used to have his shop in Houston two or three miles from where I lived.  He built two transmissions for me.  They still work :)
