I need a bit of help. I have a 67 nova sbc 383 with 142blower Brodix heads 350 trans. 9in rear end MT 29/15.5/15 tires. MSD 6al and MSD dist. Regular stall comv. My question is do I need a retarder or something like that I'm only putting in about 6lb of boost or should I put more with another pulli? I want my car for street cruise and maybe to the track. Thanks

I have a 142 in my 67 for the past 13 years never needed a boost retard for it.

I'm going to be running a 6-71 and have no plans on using a retarder. 6lbs isn't a lot of boost imo, get it up to around 14lbs and run it on e85

Ha, dude my eyes are watering I'm laughing so hard at my desk. I've never heard them called truck nuts. I just call them hitch balls.

Not a *******, and it was my mechanic's kid driving my car. Yes he was doing some burn outs, he was 17 at that time you know how kid are. I had a 327 at that time.
