Carburetor Rebuild Basics (Part 1) -EricTheCarGuy
Carburetor Rebuild Basics covers the basics of rebuilding a carburetor. Now
there are a LOT of different carburetors out there so this video won't
apply to all of them, but it will give you a general idea of what you would
be in for if you decided to rebuild one. Me, I like rebuilding carburetors.
There's something about mechanical things like carburetors that interest
me. How even the smallest part has a big effect on the overall operation of
your engine. Since we've gone to fuel injection carburetors have become
somewhat obsolete. I'm still a fan though. I may be a little rusty on this
stuff since I haven't done this in some time but I hope this video helps
you just the same. If nothing else, I hope you're entertained by it.

LSX Shootout True Street Class 2009
Memphis, TN. (October 17, 2009) The final results are in from the 3rd
Annual GM Performance Parts LSX Shootout during the 2009 NMCA World Finals
at Memphis Motorsports Park (Memphis, TN). East Coast Superchargings Doug
Ring took top honors while competing in the GM Performance Parts True
The NMCA True Street LSX Class featured more than 120 highly-modified
LSX-powered street cars that are certified street-legal and required to
complete a 30-mile course through the streets around Memphis. True Street
is designed for stock-chassis or back-half type vehicles running 10.5-inch
wide tires. All vehicles must be registered, licensed, and insured. Any
year vehicle without any restrictions on power adders are allowed to
compete. Following the 30 mile cruise, competitors were required to make
three consecutive passes, without opening the hood or topping off the fuel
Doug Ring, co-owner of East Coast Supercharging (ECS), traveled more than
36 hours round trip to attend the shootout. He said what could be a more
effective way to showcase what we do than to come out and put it all on the
line at what is considered the premier LSX Street Car shootout in the
nation? Rings car, a 98 Corvette convertible, is prepared with a GM LS2
stroked to 402ci and pumped up by an ECS Supercharging System utilizing a
Paxton Novi 2000 head unit. I drive the car on the street quite often, and
I have logged more than thirty 8-second passes on the set up. The majority
of the event was business as usual. Doug made three consecutive passes of
8.86, 8.81 and 9.05 for an average of 8.91, besting the competition by more
than a half-second. Forty-five minutes later, Doug swapped his DOT tires
for a pair of slicks, tweaked the tune a bit, and clicked off an ET of
8.63, setting a new world record for late-model supercharged Corvettes.
Doug would like to thank Paxton Superchargers and American Racing Headers. Pfadt
Race Engineering was also a huge reason for the very quick times while
utilizing an IRS-style setup. Pfadt put together a suspension that applies
the power to the ground consistently and lives under the rigors of street
driving. As fast as it is, the car is easy to drive. On the street or at
the track, the car is stable and still comes off the line incredibly well
while holding the 60-foot drag racing record for a late model Corvette with
an IRS suspension, proclaimed Doug.
