   I'm also an ex-motor head. I used to run a Carter AFB on my 340 Plymouth
motor that I stuffed into a '52 MG TD. Wow! What a ride! But NOTHING beat
my 426 Hemi with dual AFBs that I had in my Plymouth Superbird! I've
slowed down a bit but I still have a '70 Dodge Challanger with a 440
Six-Pak sitting in the side yard.
