    I have a 350 how do you adjust the timing? And I have a 4bbl carb. with a small air filter. Is bigger better? I bought it with the small air filter.

    Installing a radio/cd player

    I want to put/cut a cd player radio in where the old radio goes. Do I need a support of some type to hold the radio in place?

    Go to autozone.com spec out for the year of the engine, go to tech help. You will find info on vacum tuning, first get your timing as close as you can then, set up for max vacum, there is also a pretty good trouble shooting add for engine trouble. Good luck play hard!!:D As for the filter question, you can't have to much clean air, think about it, is it easier for you to breathe threw a drinking straw or threw a radiator hose.

    Thanks!!! I was telling a friend more air more power! But he was saying it didn't matter for my type of engine. I just wanted a second opinion. Now I have to find a bigger pan to go onto the carb. The filter is not going to be a problem to find.

    if you're going to be doing alot of playing in mud/water, avoid the open element air cleaners. find a stock housing, and put a stock air cleaner in it.

    The hardest part is cutting the steel dash and cluster. You will probably need to support the back of the unit with strapping. I just attached a strap from the bolt on the back to the gas peddle support bracket. Most units have a strap included.

    I can send you a pic of how I did mine if you need. PM with your email if you want a pic.
