While I don't have a 034ed car, I know one, Brady's '83. He will probably
chime in later on that subject, I think he is busy getting married these
days, but I can comment on a few things.

- throttle. If one swap the progressive cam from the OEM setup for a more
direct/linear device, throttle will be very touchy and sensitive to input.
For everyday drives, it can be annoying. 

- noise. Brady's car has a cone filter directly in front of the TB. While it
is fine for performance, noise level is high, obviously, but the noise pitch
is also a bit strange, like a turbine mixed with a leaking door seal. If it
was my car, I'd keep the cone filter, but I would muffled it in a custom box
to hear more of the engine/exhaust and less of the intake. I don't like
noisy engines in a street car.
