"The Big Block Chevy Experiment"
What would happen if you took a 460 BBC out of a Camaro that ran 10.60s and
dropped it into an altered? The test vehicle is Matsuda Racing's '48 Fiat
Topolino altered (normally powered by a blown alcohol small block Chevy).

37 Fiat Topolino Bob test drive
Bob Rizzoli's 37 Fiat Topolino street rod...BPMS 406 Rodeck w/Kinsler 8
stack IR intake......Special Thanks to "Earl Miller" of Kinsler Fuel
Injection who guided us through the very complex setup of FAST EFI and the
first to provide us with a "super" base calibration fuel map for our IR 8
stack ........We are sorting out some small issuses....headlights,brake and
tag lights ......are plan is to attend Ocean City MD. in the spring for
their car show/cruise weekend. In the mean time we have been dialing in the
four link and data logging in an attemp to minamize our O2 fuel
corrections. The BPMS 406 runs very well.....lots of power for a 1600 lbs
street rod. Thanks to "Earl Miller" of Kinsler this motor idles at 900
rpm w/great throttle response ! Working w/this EFI 8 stack off and on in
the past ten years I finally had to agree with info I read on the
internet.....That this combination was never going to be a streetable
induction system .....not IR designs at any rate......Don't belive
everything you read or hear ! This pile of parts works ....So glad I didn't
give in to the Holley folks !
