Chirp the tires at 80 with a 360?

You are going to need nitrous, and lots of it! And a big huge cam, and headers, and....

You will need a new block, crank, pistons, rods, intake, headers, carbs,
and everything else that is on the block, or is inside it. Oh, and one
other thing: Lotsa money.

So, you didn't seriously mean chirp the tires at 80? Ok then. Start with
headers, nest an intake, and while you do the intake you may as well toss
in a better cam. If you drive it hard, a higher volume oil pump. If you
really want to get into the engine, make it a 390. the extra cubes will
really wake up that FE.

Subject: heat in engine compartment

have a 302 with duff ceramic coated headers..
engine runs 190
c-6 runs at 150
plug wires are i believe 8mm and also get WAY to hot..

have a steel hood with a bubble for the carb.. (predator)
am running steel braided fuel and trans cooler lines underhood
the fuel lines are 5/8 od and the trans cooler lines are 1/2 od
I am getting a fuel and trans cooler flow problem due to the lines are
getting
WAY too hot.. causing fuel to vaper lock
( fuel lines come from drivers side low
up .. across engine at 3 inches above intake manifold.. and across
manifold at passenger side to enter carb on that side..)
and transmission fluid to do apparently cause a vapor lock
also..)(loosing first gear for 2-3 min. at a time.)
(trans cooler lines go up from C-6 and just above headers on passenger
side to front mounted cooler)

thoughts on covering these lines with another shield..
and cutting wheel wells out next to headers and putting in a mesh of
some type..

also am getting oil seepage from a after market dipstick at place it
enters oil pan.
any ideas on a sealant..
