Tell me about the throttle body...  Where is it?  Maybe that's where my
vacuum leak is.  Also, when I took that big ol' honking plastic air box (?)
thingy off the top of the motor, I found a honeycomb/wasps nest sort of
looking thing.  I figured air flows in through the box through there, so I
wallered it out with a screwdriver and stuffed a rag in there.  Should I
completely block that off?  I really want to get this thing drivable--it's
the nicest car I've ever had, I just need to get it going good.  Also, does
anyone know where I can get a manual window crank setup?  I can't stand
power windows that don't work.  I'll try to get a pic tonight.

OK.  Please tell me how you expect car to run without proper metering (i.e.
Air Mass Flow Sensor on top of manifold)?  And what did you do with the
throttle body at the front of the motor (or is that where you put that 650
Holley DP).  Personally, I would have gone with a 780 with vacuum
secondaries ;-)

Love to see a pick...
