882's to E-Streets

Hey guys, I made the decision to upgrade my 882's for some Edelbrock E-Streets 5089. My heads needed valve guide work and I wasn't about to put any money in them. I had Jegs price match the E-streets so I scored them for $848 shipped and they came with a free $100 Edelbrock gasket kit. Talked to Edelbrock and the Estreets now come with 1.46 springs rather than the old 1.25 diameter ones.

Also upgrading to a Performer EPS intake and Holley Street Avenger 670 carb.
Brown truck made my day



Pulled the old heads today, should have em installed before the weekend.

Sorry to hijack, but what/who did you use to pricematch? IE, which site?

Jegs has a price match box on their site, just paste in the url. Worked for me.

If you put the time in and find better prices, jegs will step up. I saved quite a few bucks over the course of my engine build. Jegs knocked over $100 off of my cylinder heads in order to match an Internet price that I found.

Exactly, I saved enough on this order between the carb and heads that I had money for a new Performer EPS intake - and I got a gasket kit to boot.

Rather than having random sales and gimmicks, I think price matching is the way to go. Jegs has my business.

Ok, back to work.

Are those 64cc chambers? I know the 882's are 76cc chambered so you are getting a bump in compression also. Each point in compression raise is supposed to be around a 4% horsepower increase I believe.

Quick update, slowly been getting things installed...when the wife lets me.

Got everything buttoned up, ran through a few heat cycles and re-torqued everything. Went through a few sets of header gaskets trying a fix an exhaust leak. Finally found that I need a set of round port Fel-pro gaskets to go along with my longtubes, no more exhaust leaks.

Started tuning on the car with the new 670 Holley, I have a wideband AFR sensor. Found the carb was jetted lean on the primary side, increased jets 4 sizes and took care of the lean condition. Still tweaking on the tune, will play with timing next.

Looking good and should be running a lot better for you.

I always check my header gaskets against the header and the head before installation. I always use FelPro as well.

Now get out there and burn some rubber.
