    Adding Extras

    welcome Jason, in fairness your question can be met with a ton of other questions... what do you have, what do you want to have, which battery do you want to run them from, how/when will you be using them, your skill level etc etc etc etc :) where about are you?

    advice on 1776 build please :)

    perfect thankyou! :D but it opens up more questions, what would be an acceptable set to go for given the simple spec I have? cam options will be mild but I haven't looked into which ones and why as yet

    advice on 1776 build please :)

    advice on 1776 build please :)

    Ok so been looking on eBay for carbs, seems there are quite a few dhla's on there Can they be used running vertically? I know weber dcoe's don't like it which is why the idf's are for.. They are within budget for carbs that I had in mind, some are reconditioned too

    advice on 1776 build please :)

    Thanks guys! Mr 68 that's really helped thankyou.. Sounds like we will have similar specs Carb choice will be hampered by the budget, brand new ict's are half the money of dhla's or idf's, whilst I'd like them I can't push to financing those, unless a good used set were available but how...
