Alright, its not really a pos but it has been pissing me off lately and would really appreciate some help. It is a 82 Z28 w/ a 350 sb. The car sat for three years before I aquired it. Getting it runnin wasn't too bad and since have added some headers and other junk, woohoo. Recently, smoke has been coming out the exhaust and burnin a hella lot of oil. I'd suspect a head gasket but there isn't any mixing of fluids that I can tell. Timing is on the money and A/F mix is about as close as I can get it w/o fingering out this prob. I know there's more power in this enging than I'm getting out of it. Dont get me wrong it will go down the road but it wont burn like it should/will. Occasionally I'll get backfires when I pedal down at the short trees. Or going down the highway I'll calmly be crusing down the road(no, really) and where there had been little smoke there will be tremendious smoke all of a sudden. Usually I'll notice that when the rpm's are decining. OK that a little long but please help. I'm at my wits end.
have the same problem?
