    Sorting out my Roadster

    Well had the Mass-Flo replaced with a QuickFuel 600 slayer and also had the rear sway bar removed....couldn't be happier. The car is super responsive and pulls hard all through the rev range, and the squeaks from the back end are gone as an interesting side bar it actual seems to ride better over bumps than it used to.

    Now I just have a nagging oil leak looks like rear main seal but for now I'll live with it. Is anyone going to be at the NorthEast Region Shelby up near Allentown Pa this week-end?

    I was not aware of this show. I might try to attend the car show on Sunday. Please send me a PM with your plans and maybe we could meet. Weather could be an issue.

    Ceasar, just so you know, nearly every oil leak on a sbf looks like it's from the rear main seal. But it almost never is. Top culprits are valve cover gaskets, intake, and 3rd might be flywheel bolts which need to have sealer on them as the hole goes all the way through the crankshaft flange.
